Molino de Sabandia

August 15th, 2011

A regular tourist stop, the Molino (mill) of Sabandia is located 8km from the city of Arequipa. Built in 1785 in white sillar volcanic stone, its architectural style is very in-keeping with the region.

Stone grinding wheels for wheat processing were restored in 1973 and continue to work well, powered by running water from the nearby river.
