    The owner of a craft post recommended us to go, and it was much more than expected. Well maintained, large, with lots of history. Cute!

    It is a shame not to know this given Museum, which was closed, I not only left with this feeling of discomfort, if not several tourists who came with their families to visit him. It is cute vicuña but they boost it more in their culture!
