  • C is a city that deserves its reputation, take the time to discover to understand why she was so coveted and so beautifully adorned with beautiful buildings. We did the tour with a guide, this lasted a little more than 4 hours but we n have not seen the time spent. With a mild temperatures and sunshine that has allowed to take beautiful pictures. Not to be missed and if you can with a prodessinnel guide you will not regret.

  • In my opinion are the most preserved ruins, considered world heritage. See that it was a very luxurious city and that they took care of every detail to the maximum. It seems necessary to go with a guide to better appreciate all the structures that are still preserved and understand their meaning.
