It’s not as hard as you may think. Talk a bit of Spanish and you can get by so effortlessly in El Salvador. Local people love it, they are benevolent, agreeable and supportive. Not once have I met an impolite Salvadorian when I’ve approached them in the road for help. Time is of no pertinence to them – they will help you and provide for you their time. Furthermore here’s the manner by which I got to Chalchuapa.
I was situated in Santa Ana. From the lodging, I strolled to the primary transport station around the local area, which is close to the Mercado Colon and Parque Colon. The transport terminal is called Terminale Busses Francisco Lara Pineda. Then again, the genuine transport to Chalchuapa doesn’t really leave from the terminal itself, yet its a decent milestone to get there by. Head through the transport station until you go to the primary Avenida San Antonio.
As you achieve the town of Chalchuapa, the transport veers to the left at an undeniable intersection on the carriageway. This is the place you need to get off in the event that you are making Casa Blanca your first purpose of enthusiasm for the town. When you arrive welcome the policemen that man the front, they may not see numerous remote sightseers however they will comprehend what you are here for. You meet the woman that works there, pay her $3 US to enter and you’re currently inside the Casa Blanca complex. Nearby individuals just need to pay $1 US.
You may have as of now read that I visited the indigo workshop and got a showing at Casa Blanca, so you ought to intend to do that also while you’re here. At the over of the fundamental building, on the privilege hand side you discover the Indigo Workshop. I was interested by it. The procedure appears quite basic when you hear about it yet this post will concentrate on the remains themselves.
Casa Blanca clearly signifies “white house”. It’s an antiquated archeological site furthermore has a gallery.
The primary room contains maps and stoneware and serves as a prologue to the topographical region of settlements like Casa Blanca, and I went to a couple of them myself including Palenque, Tazumal, Joya de Ceren, Teotihuacan and Monte Alban.
Room 2 is about death and reparation. There is gossip that a mass yield once happened here at Casa Blanca and a few drawings and discoveries from exploration on this. While this is world’s separated, I did have a memory of my time visiting mass suicide spot Masada as I hiked through Israel a year back.
The third room in the historical center part centered around structural engineering and what the remnants once looked like – included are maps, pictures, relics and data.
So once you’ve perused a bit of that, head on the way around Casa Blanca. The perplexing here at Casa Blanca comprises of a few pyramids going again to the Late preclassic period and the Classic period. The vestiges here at Casa Blanca are a piece of the Chalchuapa archeological zone and they show impacts from Teotihuacan and the Olmecs.
Casa Blanca is nearly identified with the vestiges of Tazumal and San Andres. The naming of the spot is just in light of the fact that the administration of El Salvador purchased the area where the Casa Blanca espresso ranch was!! It’s another name, not an antiquated name. There are numerous pyramids at Casa Blanca however just two have been in part restored. The principal part you come to on your walk is a piece of the demolishes that have been exhumed and you can see fiery debris here – the consequence of an emission from Ilopango fountain of liquid magma.(Image by Mario)
On round the circle, there are two other noticeable pyramid molded Mayan structures, grass has become drastically over both however nearby antiquarians are continually attempting to enhance the site. The remains are secured by wall along these lines you shouldn’t stroll on the pyramids themselves.
