I visited this relatively large farmers market on a Friday afternoon and it wasn't crowded. This place has numerous stands with vegetable, fruit and cheese vendors and I even saw one stall with live chicks. Very similar to La Vega in Santiago. Definitely worth stopping by if you're in the area.

The San Pedro valley where the Pichasca National Monument is, is where they found trees of 70 million years old, dinosaur and megafauna fossils, and an ancient cave where people lived up to 10000 years ago. Unfortunately, all the good bits are gone - you can find a lot of the items they found here in La Serena's excellent but small Archaeology Museum. There are a few chunks of petrified trees left, including a broken trunk about 2 or 3 meters long of a very old Monkey Puzzle tree, but not much else to fire the imagination. Information boards are all in Spanish, and there are no guides here to help tell the story. In fact, we arrived at 8.30 am when the attraction was supposed to open, and the guard did not bother to turn up until we called him on the cell number he had left on the door - we had to wait an hour! Although this is typical behavior in South America, and particularly in Chile, it detracted from our visit somewhat. However, seeing the cave was interesting, but it is now roped off due to rockfalls. Do not expect to get much out of this visit - unless you are a geologist or a Spanish speaker. It is far to drive, and public buses are irregular with a 5 km walk from the bus stop. Walking around the whole thing should take the able-bodied between 1 and 2 hours. Maybe the new visitor center they seem to be building will make this a better attraction, but with all that money they are spending on it, maybe they should hire a guard who is more reliable, and provide some better information...a missed opportunity.

It has a great importance because I was baptized there, it is a small church located in the commune of Socos, surrounded by old houses, it is a church that despite being small has a great cultural importance for the community.

He tratado en más de dos ocasiones visitar el lugar, sin embargo ha sido imposible, ya que - a diferencia de cualquier otra Viña en el país- no se puede efectuar visitas en fines de semana.
Siempre exigen reserva previa, pero no señalan con cuánta anticipación y es muy difícil comunicarse a los teléfonos indicados en la página web, ya que, no los responden casi nunca.
Se trata de una viña pequeña, que no tiene ni el porte ni infraestructura de aquellas que se encuentran en Casablanca, en Santa Cruz, o en el Valle del Maipo, sin embargo, en materia de dificultades, sobrepasan a cualquier otra del país y, a muchas del extranjero. (he visitado viñas en La Toscana sin ninguna de las restricciones señaladas).
Sin duda no haré un intento de visitarla por cuarta vez y dejaré a esta viña con su "exclusividad".
