About the tour

The old mill was built in 1621, Don Garcia de Vargas Machuca was the one in charge to build it and it still working nowadays. During Colonial time this mill was an important place because it supplied the wheat flour to make the bread and fed to inhabitants of that time. Architect Luis Felipe Calle owns the mill because he has done its restoration, the Central Bank of Perú couldn't pay his work that's why they gave it to him as his payment. He has this mill area as his house and as a museum too, there are llamas ,alpacas etc. Come and join me to know more about this nice house!

She really enjoy showing people her country and loves to learn about other cultures as well. Join Elizabeth as she shows you the white city and it's surroundings, there is so much to see!
