Toro muerto Petroglyfphs are very interesting but almost not visited by travellers, it is located in arid area of 4km.This rocks are probably a result of the eruptions of the Coropuna and Chachani volcanoes, it has decorated rocks with form of animals and plants. Pity that the peruvian goverment doesn't protec this area, locals take this stones to decorate their own houses.

Address: Corire town, Arequipa.
Directions: 7 kilometers from the panamareican highway to Lima from Arequipa
