  • Considered one of the major archaeological sites of the NOA, it is located on the basis of the High King Hill to 1,978 meters above sea level, it was reconstructed with predominantly tourist and not archaeological criteria. Despite this reconstruction the place deserves a visit, and when he gets into one of their strengths in height it is possible to see toward the cost of the original site which is not constructed or excavated. It is important to explore it and learn the history of struggle to recover the "City" of their ancestors of own voice of its protagonists. To get to the site from Route 40 should turn to the West and from there travel approximately 4 or 5 kilometers. The entrance is $50.

  • It is worth getting there, listen to talks giving the guides. To my I really liked the ride. There are restrooms, stalls of handicrafts and kiosks.

  • I recommend going with a guide as Pastrana Seba, which has another history and learn a lot about the history of the place, and also of the Quilmes community news
