  • The ruins are a wonder to know while they are available, the story could be best told and if I can contribute, pay attention to firms have the guides of the rounds missionaries, of very good level. This enhances the interest of those who are neophytes on these issues. I recommend to visit it, apart from the bad road to arrive, office and do it to early morning, with time and patience, comfortable clothes, mate and water to hydrate.
