Welcome to Salta, Argentina!
Salta city, also called “Salta la Linda” (“Salta the Beautiful”), it is a tourist destination mainly because of its architectural attractions, such as the 18th century Cabildo, the Cathedral, and the Plaza 9 de Julio city park. It also has many museums, including the Museo de Arqueología de Alta Montaña, which houses the bodies of 3 Inca children found frozen at the summit of Mount Llullaillaco. Salta is also the starting point of the “Train to the Clouds” (Tren a las nubes), and on the way to red-soiled Cafayate, as well as to other nearby tourist attractions.
Salta province is situated in the Northwest of Argentina and it borders three countries: Chile , Bolivia and Paraguay.
Salta stands out for its geographic and climatic heterogeneity, from the desert coldness of the Andes and the Puna to the subtropical heat of the jungle, with cool fertile valleys, mountains and rivers in between. Salta ‘s traditional hospitality and provincial cordiality blend with its great cultural richness. Its heritage is vast and varied: ancient Diaguita-Calchaqui and Inca vestiges, the more recent Spanish colonial legacy and its active involvement in the independence wars. These features are still alive in the architecture of its villages, towns and in the city of Salta itself.
