Introducing Belén

Slow-paced Belén, a stop on RN40, feels like, and is, a long way from anywhere, and will appeal to travelers who like things small-scale and friendly. It’s one of the best places to buy woven goods, particularly ponchos. There are many teleras (textile workshops) around town, turning out their wares made from llama, sheep and alpaca wool. The nearby ruins of El Shincal are another reason to visit.
