In Quebrada de Humahuaca Canyon, natural landscapes guard treasures of the area's pre-Hispanic past. Depending on your preference, you can enjoy hikes on the ochre mountains as well as cultural visits to the surrounding villages. For a vacation in the heart of the canyon, you can choose to stay in Purmamarca. This typical village, located at the foot of the incredible Hill of Seven Colors, features rainbow-colored rocks for you to admire on your walks.
We also recommend taking a trip through the valley's traditional Andean villages. From the church of Uquía, intact since the 17th century, to the pucará of Tilcara, a fortress built by the Omaguacas Indians, you can follow in the footsteps of the civilizations that shaped the country. The Archaeological Museum contains the history of the people of the Quebrada de Humahuaca, where you can see mummies and artifacts from archaeological excavations.
To experience this discovery of Amerindian culture in the real world, visit with the communities that live in the region, such as the Guaraní people of the Jujuy jungle. This human experience will be a memorable part of your trip to Argentina.See more
