  • We went there as one of the cultural attractions of a Congress that was participating in the city. So, we went with a bus with the entire group. To get there you go through a forest well interesting as well homogeneous and beautiful. When you arrive you are faced with actually a reproduction of a fishing village with utensils, boats, houses, etc, everything as it was in the early days until not as formerly. While we were walking there a Mister, a fisherman by trade, is preparing a lot of fish (they look like sardines) in a kiln to smoke (see photos). The end was served a delicious lunch the freshly prepared fish and other goodies and local beers. It was very interesting. Although it was too cold for an outdoor activity was indeed very nice.

  • A good place to familiarize the historical life of local fishermen. Interesting exhibits. Fishing atmosphere. Sometimes pass master classes. Suitable for visiting with children, but have a long walk.
