Check out our new exhibition

Did you know a slave could purchase his freedom back then?  An ordinary worker costs about 300 guilders, a craftsman under 22 years old about 430 guilders, but one could also pay in kind.  For example, there was a 26 years old slave who redeemed himself for 45 goats, and another slave of 54 years old traded 25 bushels of corn for freedom.1st side_Mangazina resizedDiscover more in our new exhibition that gives an overview of the rich heritage of the most interesting sights of the Rincon area like Kaomati, Porta Spaño and Bototé.
