Also, why not, some gossip from those times. We will finish with a delicious three-course meal at a very special restaurant.

We will walk mainly on a pedestrian street, that used to be the silversmiths street during Viceroyal times and the main one.

Along the way, we will visit 5 beautiful homes of the wealthiest families of those times. This homes belonged to counts and marquises that is why they are known as palaces.
