  • It is a worthy place to be visited. A work of art in every rincon you look at. Absolutely recommendable.

  • The place on an aesthetic level is beautiful, however it is (except for some vessels) work and replica of Héctor Cruz (a renowned local artist, ceramist, painter and recognized for his tapestries). The entrance costs 200 pesos and gives access to the museum (which is more of an art gallery) composed of its stone sculptures and 4 rooms. All exterior and sculptures are made of stones stolen from the valley (in my personal opinion that is not right as they were hundreds of trucks). The rooms are: Room 1: exhibition of rocks from different mines and regions (very cute as a museum of natural sciences) Room 2: replicas of the artist of vessels and elements of the history of the area (you can see the royals in the ruins quilmes) Room 3 : artist tapestries (excellent) Room 4: paintings by the artist (excellent) Then you can go to a souvenir area where jewelry, typical local crafts and works by Héctor Cruz are sold.
