Beautiful paintings, the interior inspired by the indigenous cultures. You can get to know something about the indigenous cultures. It’s not a historical site though.

Great experience, very informative and interesting. The painter/owner performs live exhibit on Saturdays which is amazing. Close to the city, next to a crater outlook, quick ride absolutely worth taking. Would absolutely recommend.
