  • Very good sample. Missing explanations or any guide personal or brochure that explains the logic of the sample. Excellent experience at the restaurant

  • A nice place, unlike others who were there, there was no one gaining entry and was fully open. It is in front of the plaza de toros and takes very little time to explore it. You can enter a couple of cars. The station is precious.

  • We see old cars outside wooden (Museum closed) - probably worth to visit.
