The ruins in the creek speak for themselves. The importance of the sector for travellers of the last centuries can be seen. Treutler reports on a refuge and the danger of the sector. Treutler describes in his book "15 Jahre in Südamerika" (page 211) in a very dramatic way a violent assault by a gang of criminals - where a Tres Punta administrator was killed and he (Treutler) is wounded but alive.
(This chapter of Treutler's book is to be classified as fiction - able Treutler heard news of assaults in this sector, but it is not very likely that things happened as he described it).

Today it's all quiet in Llampos. Some lizards and birds give life to the sector. The ruins are clearly recognizable, a reel road in the middle. Some sectors where the soil still shows traces of plantations. As the main road does not cross this sector at present, everything is well preserved.
