Run by a small family, Belen was cheerful and eager to make you feel right at home and offer assistance and guidance on anything while her husband prepared delicious meals at a very reasonable rate.

However, being able to see it in all its majesty was still a privilege, even if shared with a row of buses loaded with tourists. After an hour stuck ...
