  • I think being in Valledupar and not to attend this national heritage is a loss, although now they do not celebrate festivals before, this place still has that magic and around there are very good restaurants serving you wonderfully

  • The square with its colonial House frames and the bandstand where at once time was carried out which was transferred to the Park of the Vallenato legend festival is a historical part of the center of this beautiful city with its parish church and the House of Hernandito Molina.
