El tour con Josué fue super completo. Hace un recorrido por sus historia, desde los inicios de la ciudad hasta la actualidad, con datos y anécdotas históricas que hace que entiendas mucho más el por qué de lo que estás viendo.

Me gustó tanto que continúe hacia Baeza para hacer el tour con él. Super recomendable.
