  • In spite of having a significant portion of it closed for restoration, they organized an external tour to visit the ruins of a nearby church to compensate for it. Very friendly staff

  • This was the place of the original City hall, then a slaughter house, a market and now finally a museum. You can see the old foundation for the original building. It has some pre-colombian artifacts. It is all in spanish but you can understand most of whats going on. Regular price is $30, students pay $14
  • Nice small local museum with modern displays and local history.
  • Historic place. A somewhat small exhibition. Nice guides.
