El Piojito is the tourist train in Asientos, and pulls small wagons with a tractor. It began work in the early twentieth century and transported minerals from the Santa Francisca Mine to San Gil Station.
Today, this rather unusual mode of transport will take you around the El Hundido Mine so that you can get to know rudimentary mining processes and the Slaves Hall, built during the period of the viceroyalty.
