Visit to a fantastic animal rescue center and bird sanctuary

Alberto Vele started this amazing project, Yurak Allpa (white ground) in 2000, to rescue and protect wild animals, at the moment they have more than 300 species.
We at La Yunta have been supporting his project since 2016 by taking visitors and giving him a donation of $10 per person.

Come and join us for a fantastic day in the countryside visiting the most fantastic Animal Rescue Center and Bird Sanctuary in Cuenca.
