  • We visited the Valley with much anticipation and disappointed us, it seems that the summer holidays come to an end and the Valley dies, many jobs on the road closed, almost all, there isn't much q visit, spent a sunny day, for vicuña vicuña or dead square even a crafts fair. The reservoir looks beautiful but badly signposted.
