    The site is inside the archaeological site, and has several works of art carved wood by the Jesuits and indigenous. It is possible to see the Saints, Bells among other objects of the period. Lack a guide or more information on parts, as well as on the history of them, or at least of the main. I think you should have a specific space for indigenous peoples could make sales of their craft products and not to the vicinity of the Museum. Overall it is well structured and maintained.

    The site is part of the archaeological site and has many works of art from the time of the Jesuits. Emphasis on the Saints and angels.

    Great to see the samples of architectural parts of the season. The original Bell 1 ton and the carved wooden capitals. Shame can only show the distance and not be able to enter the Museum.

    Unfortunately the Museum is isolated, unable to access the inner part, you can only look at it from the outside, as well as some structures that are positioned on the porch of the Museum.
