They will show you the surroundings of this wonderful place and will surprise you with delicious typical dishes.
In the afternoon we learn how to make Adobe bricks. The blocks of adobe used for the construction of the houses are the material par excellence of the Andes. The adobe allows us to have resistant houses, easy to make and the most important thing is that it retains the heat on cold nights. We invite you to see how the land can serve as a construction material. Duration: 1 hour to 1½ hour, then we take diner with our family.
