  • The site is a small Museum of an older gentleman who joined Guinness as the largest collector of various things, but the biggest one is the collection of pencils and key chains. In addition you can try out the jams and the dulce de leche in the place that's the best I've ever had. ...

  • Us was a charming, simple but warm, place as a journey in time through the tour of the Museum of Mr. Arenas with multiple varieties of pencils, cans and various objects from other times. On the other hand, the factory of sweet is stands out by the variety: fig, Plum, strawberry and although is strange is possible savour jam of onion and eggplant, very tasty. It is possible to have lunch at the farm since there is a camp restaurant with very friendly employees.

  • The Museum has several collections, what is worth knowing, has already been recognized by the Guinness Book, not to mention the store with homemade pastries, cheeses, it's worth a try and buy.
