Great Experience – Bragging about you to everyone we meet
- Kay F.
Salta is in northwestern Argentina in the foothills of the Andes mountains. Nicknamed Salta la Linda ("Salta the Beautiful"), it has become popular for its old, colonial architecture and the gorgeous scenery. Attractions in the city proper include the 18th century Cabildo, the neo-classical style Cathedral, and the July 9th central square. The city's meuseums exhibit a wide range of artifacts and art work from the native civilations that flourished in the area, as well as from the 16th century Spanish conquest and the colonial and post-colonial periods.
Immerse your senses in Mendoza, the heart of Argentina's wine region, and one of the Great Wine Capitals of the world. Known in particular for its Malbec production, the combination of a great climate, good soil, and the notion by early grape producers to irrigate the area, makes for some wonderful wine tasting. Travel to Salta, in northern Argentina and experience a slower paced Argentina than you are used to. With its colonial architecture and cafe-lined main square, Salta is the Argentina that many travellers are looking for.
