  • I was told that it closed at 7 pm. I was 18 and was already closed. Anyway what you see from the outside is no big deal

  • It is two kilometres from the Centre of Uspallata. You can visit up to 6 pm. There are three domes built with mud and stone foundations dating to the 18th century. There was smelting of minerals extracted from gold, iron and silver mines. On the grounds there is a humble Museum.
