Later, as you stroll through an exhibition of ceramic articles, you will see how these articles are made (handcrafted).
The next part of your tour takes you into the nearby mountains to a ranch called “Rancho Jarabacoa”. This place is located in a beautiful landscape that reminds a little bit of the Alps in Europe and you will now explore these mountains.
