  • It is a point of attraction more this year that has returned to work. It is one of the 8 remaining in the world running. Located a few blocks of Caminito considered a museum along with that street Street, Fundación Proa, Quinquela Martín Museum Museum and the return of Rocha complies a walk ideal for joining with the Court's mouth Jr. about three blocks. Unfortunately the day of the visit rained a lot and did not work, nor were there people.
