As of March 20, 2020 and by Decree 297/20, the entire country entered a period of social,

preventive and obligatory isolation.

What does this mean?

That you cannot leave your home except to provide yourself with essential items, such as food,

cleaning supplies and medicines.

If you do not comply with these rules, you are breaking the law.

If you have traveled to a country where the virus is spreading or have been in contact with

someone who tested positive, you must stay in isolation for 14 days.

If you have any of the symptoms, call free of charge at 107.

La Estrella pharmacy

One of the city's oldest pharmacies, still with its original decor.

This building was constructed in 1895 by the owner of the pharmacy La Estrella. The municipal government bought the property in 1970 and incorporated into the Museum of the City.

Although it now belongs to the museum, ensuring its preservation, La Estrella continues to operate as a farmacy, complete with its original furnishings and decor.
