  • The small, provincial museum stands out pleasantly by the diagonally opposite "Themepark" on the topic of indigenous people. The presentation of the excavations of the graves appears correct, be simple laminated handout with translations - unspectacular and sympathetic!

  • Excellent treatment of all. Very good and very entertaining show. A very good way to learn the history of the region.

  • Quite interesting to view but not very exciting, had to pay to enter and tour guide only spoke Spanish, given a card in English. Good if you like this sort of thing
