The great little town of Tilcara

Tilcara is the main town in a departamento, some 80 km from the provincial capital of San Salvador De Jujuy. It is almost perfectly located to be one of the main places you should visit if you are coming to this part of Northwest Argentina. Your travel agent (or guidebook) will likely be pushing you hard to stay in Tilcara-it has hotels, travel agencies, restaurants and nightlife. In short, it has much more of an infrastructure to support tourists than most of the other towns nearby.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:the fortress, real friendly people, lots of festivals, lots of activity
  • Cons:touristy
  • In a nutshell:a good base for exploring the Quebrada de Humahuaca

    The archaeological Museum sounds very interesting. Love the llamas.

    Very interesting little page, Val. I know nothing about this part of Argentina, and reading stuff like this just makes me want to return to South America to explore some more of what I've been missing out on!

    Glad you brought me to another " never expected to land up here" site, note too that it.s closer to La Pz than BA, thoughts for the future ;-)))
