It is very interesting reading of the label that next to the rock that explains you need to understand the inscription on the stone, the longest in the country with its nine meters long. It is located in another area of the archaeological complex known as "The quad", which is not far from the area of the Royal Palace. Only is an elongated stone, but with much history, an archaeological treasure. Greetings to all travelers.show original
