The town itself has also some charming adobe houses, cobbled streets, a nice church and plaza and a big statue of Saint Peter on top of a hill with nice views.
We booked the train journey (12km to Sibambe and same back - total time of 2.5h) for the next morning so had some time to walk around the town in the afternoon.
The journey is called the most difficult railway in the world, because of the near-vertical wall of rock, the Devilś Nose.
By carving zigzags out of the rock, it allowed the train to "climb" up that once thought impassable hill going forward and backwards. During the trip it does 800m in height, pretty impressive and so was the scenery.
It has been a gorgeous train ride!
Oh, and maybe we will be on German TV next year! A camera team in a helicopter was filming the ride. all we know is that it was a German team that do a documentary of great train rides around the world.

Look at the side of the house. This is how the wall is made - adobe, stones and wood
