    It is two km from the bus station, you can walk along Route 7. We got excited thinking that there he had hosted San Martín during the crossing of the Andes, however in the same entrance poster clarifies that it has nothing to do with the army of the Andes (contradictory, since it advertises it as a waypoint the San). The place is pretty poor, since it is almost completely empty, they were the ancient vaults where melted gold and silver during the Spanish colonization. Inside them there are samples of art by local artists. And there is a guide which tells you in detail what are the vaults and what they served, clarifying it was accommodation of San Martín and the army of the Andes. We were really disappointed us, but the walk was worth it to learn more the landscape of Uspallata.
