  • After 4 months we have returned to this beautiful place, the roads increasingly better and improve the journey time. Just as friendly and warm people. Already there are belief tale that are a pole of tourism development. Streets clean, thousand and a photograph, because it really is besides bella very photographic. Many traditions of the Virgin of the Chicha as she affectionately called the Virgin of the Rosary, refuses to lose even if they do not give as much chicha as once time, it still does and their salves with its image through the streets of the historic. Wander around the historic day night is a real pleasure and visual delight.
