  • Place rich in culture, however when we visited, we were upset because we walked a lot until you reach and good part of the site was under construction, mainly on the outside, which did not give a good image and we ended up not taking pictures outside. But we love to see the inside, the place is well located, quiet around, taxi and bus just inches away, but the walk to get there. We hope to visit again in the near future.
