Near the roof of the world

The north-west was the first port of call for Spanish Conquistadors entering the country from Peru in the sixteenth century. Although, as a result, the region is steeped in Spanish history and traditions, there are also fascinating archaeological sites bearing witness to the pre-Hispanic heritage of the country.

Salta, la terra mas Linda

The last big city on the road to Bolivia, Peru and the north of Chili
Salta is so different from Jujuy on the touristic point of view, the Salta gouvernment did not sleep
Traces of a rich colonial period and now a main area for caddling, sugar and tabacco cultivating.
Frequently visited by backpackers on their way to the nearby countries or to the Capital Buenos Aires, even further : Patagonia

    Great photos of the landscape in this part of Argentina, especially your drive to 'heaven'!! We only had time for Mendoza area in the Andes and it did not look like this.
