  • A journey back in time and national and world history. Easy access as is opposite the Plaza San Martín in the area of retirement and whose input is less than the price of a bundle of cigariilos. For lovers of weapons, ride PIN. For big, boys, families, curious, which want to take is a recreation and touring their rooms in minutes or until hours. Not wait that reaches it night of them museums, except them end of week is open from Monday to Friday.
