PAUCARPATA

Paucarpata is located 7 Km  from Arequipa downtown.  On the southeast of this district there are large pre – Inca terraces.  Ancient Andes people on V century developed  characteristic agriculture and irrigation systems, creating terraces because of the  rugged range of mountains. 


The terraces set special climates that allow to cultivate a variety of vegetables through the terraces upon their resistant to low temperatures.  This kind of agricultural system resists the erosion thanks to  stone filled that was put under the land in each terrace.  There are big stones in the lower part and small stones in the upper part.  The function of these stones is to get the sun heat during the day to keep same temperature during the night.  The pincipal vegetables cultivated are corn, potatoes, onions, barley and alfalfa. 


Because of the beauty of these terrases, Paucarpata terraces were declared “Peruvian Cultural Heritage”
