Guargacho Archaeological Interpretation Center

These facilities house an archaeological interpretation center inside. On April 4, 1972, Pastor Don Salvador González Alayón discovered an archaeological site on the El Monte farm, belonging to the Alfonso Calzadilla family, which was called the "Guargacho ceremonial and residential complex."

Initially, the studies concluded that it was a place of worship and ritual, related to propitiatory or gratifying rites, with animal sacrifice and collective banquets.
Subsequent investigations have interpreted it as an aboriginal housing complex.


El Aljibe exhibition hall

The El Aljibe room was inaugurated in 2004 and is dedicated to temporary exhibitions of art and culture with variable themes that take place throughout the year. It has room for works of art from both professionals and amateurs and apprentices.
