You will visit its square, the church of San Lucas, and its bell tower built in 1750, made of adobe and cactus wood, one of the most imposing in the region and declared a National Monument. In the Jerez Valley, you will admire the richness of the Toconares, a canyon that enjoys fertility and turns the sector into one of the greenest places in the desert. Here you can see fruit trees and varied flora.
