  • It is interesting to know and understand. But the conservation status leaves much to be desired.

  • If you are lover of astronomy it is a place to visit because the explanation that has is very complete. Apart from that not much more.

  • They took us on a city tour along with other tourist attractions. I didn't know what it was, but when you reach the place, already the sculpture I liked, bright colors also, and the explanation of the Guide, made a good combo. Recommended
