Brief interview to the Director of Yerbas Buenas historical museum, M aría Elba Gálvez Moreno.
1. Do you consider important the museum? R: I think that it is really important because the museum preserves nine collections of heritage character, in which there are more than two thousand objects protected by the law of national monuments; and also because it shows the artistic and historic past from the region and the country. 2. What do you think this region/city should have to make progresses in tourism? R: Maybe we need to renovate our touristic resources in order to promote them and attract more tourists, because there are a lot of beautiful places but not many people know about them. 3. How many visitors come each year to the museum? R: we don´t have a concrete number. But hundreds of visitors come each year to visit us. 4. Who visit the museum more frequently, Chileans or tourists? What do you think about it? R: I have to say that Chileans visit more the museum, probably because not many tourists know about the existence of it. 5. Do you think that there is something you could do to bring in more people? R: of course, there are a few activities that we are trying to implement. The first one has to do whit cultural exhibitions, in which we could display about historical facts in the region and also open a debate from that topic. Then we have been thinking about making a play inside the museum. And finally I think it would be very useful to make some workshops in which we could teach everything about Maule’s region.

The national park Siete Tazas(Seven Cups) it’s located in the province of Curicó, Chile. The reserve's most popular feature was the area known as Siete Tazas. which consisted of seven consecutive natural pools with their respective waterfalls along Claro River. These waterfalls range from 1 to 10.5 metres. Unluckily before the earthquate in the 2010, the Seven Cups endup completely dried up. It is believed a rock fissure allowed the water to empty into an aquifer. In the reserve there are also two high waterfalls called El Velo de Novia (The Bridal Veil) and La Leona (The Lioness), with single vertical drops of 40 and 20 metres respectively. Many kayakers paddle the smaller falls ranging from 1 to 10.5 metres (3-32 feet). Once kayakers enter the steep canyon the only way out is down. Many tourists congregate on platforms surrounding the canyon to watch the kayakers as they navigate the waterfalls. At the end of the run kayakers must make a quick move to shore in order to avoid the 40 meter waterfall. This is the end of the canyon where kayakers then hike out.
