  • Excellent program, guided tours are different points of view of agreement to make it, and had the opportunity to make several visits guided by different people, these are carried out from the point of view of art, sociology, architecture, anthropology etc, which put special attention in each of its activities and hence is greater emphasis on the tombs of the characters that forged the greatness of this land paisa from their knowledge.
