Discover some of the most beautiful towns around Arequipa when you take this fantastic tour of the Loncco Route. The beautiful locations of Yumina, Sabandía, Mollebaya, Quequeña, and Yarabamba all await you.
Loncco Route Tour
We'll pick you up at your hotel in Arequipa at 6:30 am and start a most peculiar tour: the Loncco Route. You'll see natural landscapes and lesser-known places in Peru, but by no means less interesting. Let's discover it!
We'll start by going to the town of Quequeña, to visit the Martyrs' Museum, built during the war between Peru and Chile, and the petroglyphs of Guayalopo and Curlaca. Did you know that they are over 1500 years old?
As we go along, we'll reveal who the Loncco is, a traditional character from Arequipa famous for his particular identity. You'll be surprised!
Then we'll go to the Soncomarca Hill viewpoint, to admire some impressive views of the Arequipa terraces, and you'll have the possibility to enter the church of Quequeña. We'll continue the Loncco Route in Sogay and its picturesque square full of palm trees. Another of the tourist attractions of this town are its ashlar houses located on the terraces of the hillside and overlooking the Yarabamba River.
Then we'll go to the Uzuña lagoon, located in the Polobaya territory. Here at the foot of a volcanic mountain range you can practice activities such as boat trips, kayaking or sport fishing. Afterwards, you'll have free time to eat on your own.
The next stop will be Molleybaya, a village where remains of the Aillus community and the curacazgo were found. Here we'll take a short walk to visit its historical centre and the communal batán, an old machine for treating textiles. We'll also visit Characato and its square and church with water springs - impressive!
Next, we'll see the most emblematic places of Sabandía, among which the church of the Virgen del Rosario or the mill, a 17th century construction made of the characteristic ashlar stone
Finally, we'll return to Arequipa. The tour will end in an area near the Plaza de Armas in Arequipa at 5 pm.
