    A cultural centre as there are in many cities; cute, interesting. The historical Museum, very good, with its atmosphere and its huge collection of portraits. What it must not fail to visit is the Archeological Museum Wagner. It is exceptional: very well presented, very well explained the history of the region and its links with neighboring territories, excellent collection of materials. Especially (but not only) the collection of ceramics. Impressive. Although it would be much better if someone standing to explain what it is and the context of the materials. Nowhere says so, but some portrayed characters have "tembetá" on the lip, typical of Amazonian cultures and the Paraná basin. That deserves to be explained.

    It is ok! If you go to Santiago and does not know that do to NAP schedule is good. Best of all is that there are people in the rooms that you are explaining a bit. Good trip!
