Next, we will go to Sabandia Mill where we will see grains ground into flour by the force of water. Afterwards, we enter the Via Paisajista, which is named for its beautiful landscape and scenery. We will arrive at La Mansión del Fundador (the founder's mansion) and the Palacio de Huasacache (Huasache's palace), which is a mansion that was built in the 16th century.

We will also visit Balernio de Tingo, which is a place with an artificial, recreational lake.
