In the northwest of the country, Salta, nicknamed "Salta la Linda" because of its beauty, is a true jewel of Argentine colonial history. Walking is the best way to explore the old town district of this city, located at the foot of the Andes Mountains. Lovers of architecture will appreciate San Francisco's yellow and red church and can admire the Cabildo, an impressive structure that houses various museums that trace the city's past and the history of its buildings.
If you want to explore the origins of South America, we recommend visiting the Museum of High Altitude Archaeology. You can observe the mummies of children discovered on the summits of the province, which bear witness to Incan burial rituals.
The city's folklore is also reflected in the peñas, the traditional folk dances where you can have a drink with the people of Salta and enjoy local dishes. If you want to discover Salta la Linda from another angle, ride the cable car to the top of Cerro San Bernardo. The breathtaking view of the city and its white buildings is especially beautiful, both by day and by night.See more
