  • The La Aurora stay, about 30 km from jump, is a site of tourist attraction. It is an ideal place for meditation and mysticism. For Catholics is a site of pilgrimage, while that for many people it is a place of great energy from Termas de Dayman organizam guided tours.

  • Surely for someone a believer has more attractive Promenade, the place has nothing to highlight and is a place of difficult access route in poor condition.

  • This is a visit that can be for many reasons: from curiosity to faith. Those who believe in something different from the real thing (called God, Holy, Mahoma, Lord and many other names) this visit is not an attraction. It is something that is felt and not can be transmitted.
