  • 1 block of traditional artesanales. You can buy your souvenirs here. Anything from refrigerator magnet to traditional poncho. You can spend here 1 hr max. 
  • We went to the market one afternoon, we walked 20 blocks already that is a bit away from the Center. On arrival we did not see anyone, the parking lot was empty. Then we gave has that was the hour's NAP. The place is filled with crafts of all types and prices, sweets and other traditional things, we do not buy anything (it was not our intention). The place was an old mill, which then was jail and with running of the time term being a logar for lso craftsmen. This all maintained according to origin, with some tweaks so that it can be used, talking to a shepherd told me that there is a cellar that from alii formerly had a tunnel (now closed) that communicated with the Cathedral. It also has a central patio, where at that moment were rehearsing dances as a sign for the feast of the Virgin of the miracle. The place is to take your time and visit it, I went walking, but you can go by taxi which are cheap or in collective, opposite the market there are more jobs but are not market
