Barrio Historico Reviews
O lugar é bem legal mas pequeno, bom para passar um dia, almoçar, passear pelos pontos turísticos a pé, ver o pôr do sol e jantar. Vale um bate e volta ou ficar uma noite em uma das muitas pousadinhas... more »The place is very nice but small, good for a day, lunch, stroll through points of interest on foot, watch the sunset and dinner. Worth a hit or stay a night in one of the many typical lodgings.
Parece um cenário de filme, tem a opção de alugar um carrinho tipo de golfe para fazer o percurso ou caminhando. Fiz a pé, necessário um sapato confortável. more »Looks like a movie scenario, you have the option of renting a golf type cart to make the route or walking. Did walk, need a comfortable shoe.
