  • A big market with stalls and shops selling local crafts more or less (I think the origin of many Bolivian goods). The products are almost all the same and the prices vary little.

  • The place has several jobs. People serving is very attentive and the prices are very good. They have good quality products. The place has parking and there is a tearoom where you can take something or even eat some food regional. The place has an interesting history and is linked to the history of the Mill House.

  • All very nice as always, but it would be good on this page tell also that the Government of Salta is trying to evict all the artisans of this place if give them no place to relocate them. All this to make new ventures with this historic building. Always the same. Rulers going back of silver and trampling people.
