Llamellín is a district of the province of Antonio Raymondi, in the Ancash Region of Peru.


Llamellín is like an inlaid precious stone; a small piece in the heart of the $andes, surrounded of forests of eucalyptuses; at times of Andean spring the colorful maizales, colorful wheat fields, exotic mulberry and white flowers of the Pope and the infaltable k' antu (cantuta), next to many other diverse wild flowers spill an exuberante natural beauty uncontrollably thanks to the kind “llamellina Pacha Breast”.

Llamellín is the capital of the Province of Antonio Raimondi, which is located in the Eastern flank of the White mountain range, department of Ancash, Chavín Region and Subregion Conchucos. The Province has in addition to Llamellín, the capital: five colorful districts, Aczo, Chaccho, Chingas, Mirgas and Rontoy with a population of 20.000 inhabitants approximately. It has a great variety of microclimates, with altitudes from the 1.800 to the 4.800 msm.

It has warm temperatures, you cold, humid droughts. The rainy season is of November to March. More intense the pluvial precipitation between January and March of every year. Of April to October it is most colorful the dry season. All this happens in an approximated surface of 562 km². The inhabitants are bilingual: they speak quechua and Spanish.

The town of Llamellín is approximately to the 3.200 msm with a temperature average of 16.6ºC (61.88ºF) during the day and 12.6ºC (54.68ºF) during the nights, a perfectly healthful climate. During the station it dries and the sky gets dressed a bluish mantle adorned with cloud flakes and radiating sun. In the nights the stars seem to shine, hung of the sky within reach of the eyes that them can admire all this under the protective glance of the moon or “it sucks keel.”


In the province of Antonio Raimondi one exists varied herbaceous vegetation, only with fluvial waters. This herbaceous vegetation conforms the natural grass, in punas predominates the pajonal, the straw, ichu and the gramíneas that the cattle serves as foods. In addition there is a diversity of medicinal plants, like the Escorzonera, Ear of Deer, Culen, “Jacha anise” between very many but; shrubs, such as the Guarango, Quinual, Alder, “Wuishllaj”, “Molle”, “K' arañuñumsha” that a strange shrub lacks leaves its stems are smooth of grayish color, “Patti” heavy tree whose roots are resembled the Popes and uses in the veterinary medicine, Tare, Lloque, is used to make canes, among which still they subsist, lamentably some are in extinction.

The Eucalyptus that conforms great forests and uses in the constructions, Penka, or “k' altar” of the leaves removes fibers to make ropes, and of its flower (maguey) that appear of the center and when it grows is a long stem is used in the constructions. They are those of wild fruit and eatable as the bramble or “Shiraka” its fruit is a type of Moor, “Pank' to mullaca” round and sweet fruits are locked up in the sépalos, the Kapulí is a shrub and their fruits are as the sour cherries, Elder or “Rayán” shrub of white flowers whose infusion is for curing the cough and its fruits are clusters of Moors jets. “Yacún” that is a tubercle like the sweet and substantial Pope but, does not cultivate it grows only by the kindness of the nature in strategic places; they are also the aggressors, like “shilcu” or dry love, whose thorns when they are mature have the property to impregnate themselves in the clothes, “ishanca” or ortiga that this generally camouflaged hoping its victim to leave its poison him, which react in the human skin causing a severe inflammation, “huajk' ra casha” poisonous shrub of long thorns and fruits. Also these thorny can be useful, as “ankuy casha” is a cactus with long and strong thorns, serve as “palitos to weave” averages, caps and others. And thus the flora of the region is ample, not yet I have mentioned nor half, but it did not want to let tell of the flower of cantuta or “k' antu them”, red overflowing she of hermosura; “shok' umpa huaytita” is a red florcita like a bell, which is coveted so much by bees as by children due to its showy yellow honey and “rima-rima” of florcillas which they smile to the traveller to speak of el/ella neither or finishes happening.


Small birds from but small like the colibrí or “huinchus” to but the great ones like the cóndor exist. In the low parts they inhabit “chiquillo” and “it keeps horse” both black birds, “quienquien” of yellow color and plomizo, that when singing seems to pronounce the words of its name, papagayo or “k' you argue (dark-brown of the low zones) walk in flocks making deafening noises in the months of May to take advantage of the sweet choclos, the beautiful zorzal and tórtolas small birds, in the zones but high siki is the “k' eri yukis”, “ruihuaj” bird of yellow plumage and melodioso song, “huanchaco” of colored chest, “pichuichanka” and finches that give his melodías matutinalmente and when the sun this in upper; rapaces sparrowhawk or “haunch” hawk or “huaman” kestrel or “quillicsha” owl or “tucu” lechuza or “chusej” and scavenging animals like gallinaso or “huiscur” and the skillful king of the $andes the Cóndor. Ours punas constitutes the natural habitat of Deer, timid and summary Vizcachas that leave their caves single to solear themselves, zorrillos Foxes or “atoj” or “añas” unmistakable by their scent, the weasel or “huaywash”, muca or “achacu”, pumas and others in extinction process. Also ganso Andean or “huachhuas” abounds, the perdices or “tzacua”. And that not to say of the “orange mariquitas”, rojitas or with black small points that are in the harvests. Also there is batrachians and small lizards or “arash” that is crossed in the ways and leaves their caves to remove the language to the travellers.
