  • It was amazing, the artist is really professional and his jobs are beautiful
  • It's actually a private museum from one of the most well-known artist in Ecuador. It's an impressive place but it's not a temple ruin (I know I should have informed myself before). I was lucky as I was the only guest, they offered me a coca tea and I had a private introduction to the temple which is actually dedicated to the mother of the artist.
