  • The Salta travel to Amaicha del Valle is an adventure, a part of the road stay fascinated by the amazing geological formations caused by soil erosion as the "throat of the devil, the friar, windows, etc." Amaicha is how to reach an oasis not only biodiversity but also of culture. while I was delighted with the Museum, but I was still dazed and excited with the of the place, hospitable people, passionate about their identity, preserving its original territorial organization, I could know the "Council of elders" that relate the life of the place with mysticism and Andean ancestral rites. You can enjoy variety of cheeses of goat, local wines, beer from carob and others. The place is really amazing...

  • At a cost of $70 entry, it is a must-see in the city of the Sun. The Museum strikes by its good layout and is aimed at interested in Aboriginal culture in all its aspects. Two rooms of geology and anthropology, and two exhibition compose it of tapestries, paintings and sculptures. In a large outer courtyard are enormous figures made with stone representing divinities in the Pachamama worship, supplemented with cacti and cacti in the area. The atmosphere of the venue is a cult or a representation of the PACHAMAMA through symbols, cave pictures and sculptures in stone and quartz. Every corner of the place is decorated and has recorded pre-Columbian figures, cactus, mosaics, ceramics, really is a work of art created in another work of art. The different strategic areas of rest make the interactive visitor with the work as if it were little, surrounded by a bright landscape where everything shines and shines from the hills to a sky blue as pure and clean. I have attached a photo, did you useful?

  • Interessting place!
  • Very nice and well kept. Good representation of the local culture. Collection of minerals from the area is interesting and varied. The place to buy crafts is well attended and has variety of accessories and gifts. Clean bathrooms but could be improved a bit. Parking is almost on the route and it could be something to give shade to the cars. I would add a place that sells cool drinks to the pass. I'll be back

  • We expected visit a Museum, and we find ourselves with a sample of the plastic artist owner of the establishment. I think it is important to clarify this in advance, given that the parts that are displayed without replica or original loa interpretations developed by the artist. An Ordinance we urge, badly, go to rooms that were closed, disrupting our tour. Unfortunately, we could not justify the expense realized.
