  • A very large market with very many stalls allowing to have a huge choice. You can't spend hours there if you're a fan of crafts.

  • It is admirable the skill of the artisans who with destresa offer their works of art, such as paintings, fabrics, jewelry, ponchos blankets. Buy 2 blankets, 2 blouses for my wife and daughter and a hammock.
