Magic ballad, for a moment time stopped, few people in this period, we were able to fully appreciate these places, the population makes it a point of honor to preserve these places, congratulations! A very special mention for Miguel our benevolent guide, he knows these places perfectly, he talks about them with passion. I recommend, you can go there with your eyes closed. Thanks to Paula for her warm welcome and her kindness.
