  • It can be done in a short, 30-minute visit, the place is 2 km from the Centre of Uspallata and is offered, free of charge, a brief explanation of the history of the place, he has a small museum and you can tour the ruins of furnaces and the mill, ideal to complement with a visit to some of the abandoned mines in the area that exploited the Jesuits for hundreds of years

  • We were family, the person who served us was very clear with the explanations, the place is very well kept and care, it is for a visit the step as not delays more than 1 hour and it is free. Only as recommendation it would be desirable that the person who attends has a better place where to be (desk, Chair, water) and also for visitors. Also very cute.!

  • It is a short walk, but it is worth approaching and know a historic place like Las Bóvedas. In addition, the explanation is clear and precise. Would be good that to the workers of the culture them pay a better salary. Part of revaluing the past is remunerated with dignity to those who are responsible for this task.
