Rodríguez in the twenties as a Government House. In addition to being a space for office work, the location also served as a station for troops.

Archaeological zone of Vallecitos

An impressive place full of energy and natural beauties. Historically, Vallecitos has paintings made by ancient Kumiai, which showcase the magical-religious elements represented by human and animal figures.
In one of the sites, you will find the famous “Diablito” (Sunwatcher), which is the figure of a man with horns on his head. On the 21st and 22nd of December, coinciding with the winter solstice, the sun directly points to this figure and illuminates his eyes.
Marvel at the majesty of one of the expressions that continue to make history in our region.
