Take a step back in time at the peaceful and clean town of Cachi, surrounded by vineyards, farming lands, and imposing mountain peaks. Walk along the quiet alleys lined with colonial-style adobe houses with whitewashed walls. The city's major attraction is a 16th-century church covered with a roof made of cacti, which is a recognized National Historical Monument. Hike the mountains, take a tour of the world's highest vineyard, visit the desert landscape of Los Cardones National Park, and do not miss the "Enchanted Valley," where erosion has carved suggestive shapes into the rocks.

    We were in Cachì from mid-afternoon until the next morning, and it was a pleasant and relaxing stop on our road trip. Here time seems to have stopped a few years ago, the low houses, bars on the square, the slow rhythms etc contribute to make the atmosphere very particular. If you have time you can visit the mirador outside (especially the one with the cemetery), enjoy a fernet cola in the square or a good hot meal in a restaurant.

    little town in the heart of the province of Salta. wonderful small buildings all in tones of white. There is a small central square in which worth stopping for a relaxing break.

    Salta, we decided to go to Cachi in auto and it is really an unforgettable step because it passes through places that one cannot help wonder. It is worth going by the picturesque and secluded both view of the road of Cachi. It is really but incomparable atmosphere. There are shops to buy, restaurants, the plaza Church and the charm of the place says it all... Go!

Where to stay in Cachi

Across the small urban area of Cachi, you'll find well-appointed accommodations set in atmospheric colonial-era buildings. Mainly offering little but the room itself, these small hotels and guesthouses have more than enough charm and welcoming spirit to make you forget about the lack of amenities. Campgrounds just outside of the main village present a particularly enticing option for visitors wanting to get straight out into the landscape and spend a night under the stars.
