La Casa Cultural ‘Camecalt’ houses a small exposition room with archeological pieces found in the surrounding area inhabited by indigenous communities of the ‘Ulúas’ tribe.

One of the most interesting piece is a skeleton found in a funerary piece of clay buried in the archeological site of San Antonio. The skeleton had a necklace with 25 animal figures of jade.

Part of the collection of this small museum consists of utensils and domestic objects like plates and pans found in excavations that were undertaken in this region.

Getting There

The establishment is located in front of the central park in Pueblo Nuevo (60 kilometers from Estelí). There are buses that leave from the city of Pueblo Nuevo. If you traveling by private transportation, you should drive on the Panamerican highway heading North and then you will find a fork that will lead you to Pueblo Nuevo, close to Palacagüina.
