Last and most remarkable stop takes place just a few minutes away further south at cozy Sabaneta, a “rural” village that has been absorbed through decades by the ever-increasing construction projects that expand our city towards the outskirts. You will even see curious street signs prohibiting horse riding around main Square which explains how passionate this culture has been about horses and many other practices that still persist today.
