We visited the Fundacion on a very hot day but the park is so beautiful and the exhibition so fascinating that it didn't matter! If you like modern sculpture in a wonderful setting, it is worth visiting.

Distance is about 20 kilometers. During the season the road is pretty busy so it may take at least 30 minutes to get there.
