  • A station that carries the entire history of the people, a unique architecture and eccentric but unfortunately abandoned. But it's worth the space and the theatre which is next.

  • That evening warm 34 degrees walking to noon. But it was worth approaching this emblematic building. I would like to know more about the but the time always missing and also heat pressed. He gave only to admire it from the outside and follow to another destination. If you have a chance for more. I think that you would like.
