Lamas, the folkloric Capital of San Martin Feb 26, 2016
Lamas is located at 30 minutes from tarapoto by car. Is considered as the folkloric capital of San Martin Region and has a lot of places to visit. First, it is a must to visit its famous medieval castle which was built by an italian who when was a child dreamed of having a castle for himself. When he grown up was rich enough to accomplish its dream and built it in lamas where he is living now. Theorically the castle wasn't meant for tourist but realising the interest about the castle was higuer and higher he decided to get acces to the public.

Apart from the castle is worthy to know the huaycos who are descendant of the first dwellers of the region and havea lot of curious and beatiful traditions. It is also inetresting to visit the plaza de armas and the mirador a viewpoint inthe highest part of the city
