Things to do: nature
Angastaco is a town in San Carlos Department, Salta Province, Argentina, in the Calchaquí Valley. It is located on highway RN 40. In its original language, the town name means "Eagle of the Carob tree" (águila del algarrobo).PopulationThe town has 881 inhabitants, representing an increase of 40.3% compared to the 628 inhabitants in the previous census.TourismAngastaco is located in the middle mountains in a valley, crossed by the river of the same name, which crosses near the village after its source in Pucara, pouring its waters into the river below Calchaquí. This is striking, the contrast between the lush green crops and the sandy soil of the valleys. Since the mid-eighteenth century, indigenous nations settled in the town of Angastaco depended on the Franciscan Mission of Calchaquí Rosario, located in the hamlet of San Isidro, near Cafayate.Places to visitThe town itself has a beautiful Inn, with a Civic Center with a small archaeological museum, with the Church that is projected onto a corner square with their crafts, with their regional wines and "Pater", with its incomparable perfume mistela.All this makes Angastaco not a place for tourists to be satisfied with hasty look to continue their journey in search of new scenery.Nearby in the direction of Cafayate, the landscape resembles that of the moon, especially in the Steps of the "Glacier" and "Arrow", the conditions and light constantly changing.Finca El Carmen, rural residence, 8km away in a northerly direction along the road to Cachi National Route 40, a fertile valley nestled between the mountains and continues with the particular characteristics of the stream of arrows. They develop farming and rural tourism, such as accommodation, excursions to heritage places, hot springs, and horseback riding among others. On the farm is located one of the oldest churches throughout the Valley Calchaquí dating from 1780, restored back in 1969 by the current owners. It is worth visiting this place both for the incredible scenery as well as by its customs and its people.
