  • It is incredible to see the mummy, in my case it was the child so well preserved (500 years before now) together with the fine objects with which he was buried inside the volcano.

  • Spent about 10 minutes inside. As a tourist, I had to buy a ticket online and register on another site without English options. The ticket itself is like 3$ cad so very affordable, but... Even if you register online and have your ticket, you still get in the same line as everyone else buying a ticket that day... Makes no sense!
  • It is really impressive to see the mummies in such a good state. It was just as if the girl was only sleeping. The grave goods even seemed to be almost new. This gives a great insight in the Andean life.
