You won't regret the trip to get there. The tour Is a kind of time machine that takes you to the 17th century. The astronomical observatory and telescope are also highly recommended !

This mission shows a more complete old mission, and the added value of the astronomical research and some very friendly museum staff that are passionate about those old achievements. You can drive to the beach to Lake Yacyreta - impressive place!
