There is also a sculpture of the Divino Niño representing the Catholic faith in the community. Ñuñurco is located next to the vía Paute-Guarumales-Méndez.

Relatively short to people used to tramping about the countryside for long distances? Wear comfortable shoes; a warm, waterproof jacket; bring water, etc.>
