  • Visit the Callejón de Hamel on mother's day Sunday and had very good rumba. The place is very scenic. Reset with recycled, they have very nice places to see. It is armed for tourism, where you econtras many people who you "Guide" for the place to change that to buy you a drink, or a CD. Try scoters, which is a drink made in the creative artist's home place, is something that must be done. You should visit it, knowing these things.

  • Interewting decoration (I wouldn't call it art) but maybe not worth going,, as you'll be pestered like hell.  more »
  • We had talked about this site, very nice, very artistic and special: all lies, is a trap for tourists, you deceive yourself trying to scam. Put you very expensive drinks, low-alcohol and small vessels, they bother you much to sell cd at very high prices. Trash on all sides, dirty and foul-smelling place, the classic place where you don't feel safe. I do not recommend to anyone
