History


Description

José de la Borda built the present town with money from the silver mines. There is a Museo de la Platería, at Platz Borda 1, admission US $0.80 which is devoted to modern silver working and on Avenida de los Plateros is the Platería La Mina which exhibits mining techniques. Most weekends there is a silver market next to the bus station whert prices are about half those of the shops in the town.
