  • Spectacular training ride. Pablo de el Puerto guide there are no words. We went three times and their contributions are spectacular. The energy that puts in its history is impressive. Divine Museum technology. We were very grateful.

  • Sunday 15 there was a sheet of notebook that said closed due to technical problems. Lack of respect to citizenship without warning. A pity because it must be one of the best sites and museums of the Uruguay. To see if there are batteries, so there are people who want to make tourism.
