The beauty of the village is the Church and its surroundings, the Church to bring evil, is not to keep it much. Lack of interest of the authorities to maintain this heritage. We didn't see many people, only three people. Very little movement feels. You should go with time. I recommend to stay in Colchane for at least three days to explore all corners of the industry.show original
