    Thanks so much for getting back to me! I've done a little research on the area and it seems great. Hopefully I will be able to go on a visit this summer!

PIECECITOS Piececitos de niño, azulosos de frío, ¡cómo os ven y no os cubren, ¡Dios mío! ¡Piececitos heridos por los guijarros todos, ultrajados de nieves y lodos! El hombre ciego ignora que por donde pasáis, una flor de luz viva dejáis; que allí donde ponéis la plantita sangrante, el nardo nace más fragante. Piececitos de niño, dos joyitas sufrientes, ¡cómo pasan sin veros las gentes! -Gabriela Mistral
