  • This monument stands out towering over the village and is perhaps a bit over the top. Nonetheless good views can be had from around the base and the cactus add to the spectacle.  more »

  • Great monument. Peaceful village with amazing llama steak and live music
  • Very peaceful and the view is Nice !
  • From below it seems cute but impossible to climb so many stairs with more than 30 ° of temperature that did in April when I went. The base was full, up nobody did not.

  • Fabulous construction evoking the intervention of the aborigine in the heroic epic for independence. Worthy to take time and listen to those who know the meaning of all the sculptures and altorelieves. Pleasant surprise for who goes first to a village that has much more to offer to be one more on the way to the Highlands.
