The exhibits were well-organized, informative, very professionally done. There are very clearly demarcated areas of focus (Roman, etc.). The exhibits were comprehensive and the scope was broad.

Barrio de Salamanca
Broad, tree-lined avenues with pretty streetlights
frame the neighbourhood of Barrio Salamanca. With
beautiful condominium buildings that make up most
blocks in this area, this part of town is refined and
quiet. It is also host to a few of the city's large

Jose Ortega y Gasset. A walk down these streets will
reveal upscale chains, small boutiques, and plenty of

We are looking for a human bone conservation specialist for a reliquary of a future saint (blessed). We are also looking for a fabricator of the glass reliquary which will be hermitically sealed. We would appreciate it if you can recommend somebody or a company. Thank you. Angelita Mangalindan
