  • In that House, beautifully preserved, were blurred the remains of Gral. Lavalle, with whose corpse was what was left of his army, to prevent the body falling into hands enemy. To make a stop in Tilcara to rest, will seize the moment for his wake. The House has a chapel (I don't know if it will have been built at later time). It is located in the heart of the city, opposite a corner of the main square (which deserves a paragraph aside). It is good to visit the place, great peace.
