  • We visited the House of eleven patios, apart from it and enjoy the architecture of the House, inside you can find handicrafts of the region: textile, vegetable fibres. Metalworking, wood, etc., with techniques of pre-Hispanic, as the mark and lacquers. It is best that you contribute directly to the craftsmen. I also saw that there were workshops and various activities. I didn't tour, but it also seems a good option.
