Old Town is rich in history and tradition. You must take your family to walk the steps of history. This is a friendly town that will not disappoint. Ecclectic, culturally mixed, and full of personality.

This town is very cute. They have preserved the image of the town. People are so friendly , very southern atmosphere. To take advantage of the small town, read about it before you go and you will enjoy it to the max. I love it.
