  • I wasn't expecting too much of the place. They charged US 70 pesos per adult. The place is beautiful, the incredible view. The new interpretation centre is a spectacular interactive Museum of art. It has bathrooms y.aire conditioning.

  • It is a very interesting place... visit it on a trip from cafayate to Bethlehem (Catamarca)... it is worth entering the path and know it

  • Very good tour to perform! We went on family and raining, but that didn't matter! The entrance is accessible (3.5 dollars, paid in pesos, but to have a relationship) there are guides in the area, from the Aboriginal community, which entering tell you the story and explain the distribution of the ruins, for my taste a little lacked a bit of info on l to architecture. Focusing much on the story but say nothing of how life was in those ruins. After this talk you have free access to everything (which is a bit dangerous) but you can access the Pucara North, South Pucara, and I do not got, but I saw that there were people who followed up to the houses that are at the top. You are building a center of interpretation, which will be completed by April of 2018, more or less, which will help better understand the things.
