Then in a micro-cinema they pass a film to understand what happened at the scene. I couldn't help but tears at the end of the screening. I wasn't the only one, several of us came out with red eyes. Then the community guide took us to the ruins. Pin. Unforgettable. Little is I can add. You have to go see it with your own eyes.

The visit starts from a museum, very interesting, all focused on the Quilmes. In a special room, a film of about ten minutes is screened that tells the interesting story of this people. We then move outside, where a guide explains how society was organized and how the houses were made and were made. You then have the opportunity to devote time to the independently visit of the site: a settlement inserted in a huge expanse of cacti. The best way to appreciate its beauty is to follow a path that leads to a mirador (panoramic point) from which you will enjoy a wonderful view of the settlement from above.
Beautiful archeological site. With a museum explaining about the Quilmes people. The movie in the theatre has English subtitles and the reception of the museum has a view leaflets in English as well.
Nice but not worth a detour I think.
