  • Worth the penalty is rising, from its Summit all the people is already displayed the mountains that surround it. At the foot of the same is a crafts market in which many of them unfortunately are imported... at the top also a Museum (the entry was not expensive, but did not have much time). There are guys who come asking one coins, candies or sing us songs.

  • Monument to Heroes of independence is an imposing group of sculptures, work by Ernesto Soto Avendaño, was erected on the occasion of paying homage to the Argentine army's North and Gaucho squads of the Quebrada de Humahuaca in command of the colonels Álvarez Prado and Arias, Martín Miguel de Güemes-dependent. Basically since 1816, when the defense of the northern border was in charge of the town of Salta and Jujuy led by Güemes. In addition to the historical is an ideal place to take pictures

  • From below it seems cute but impossible to climb so many stairs with more than 30 ° of temperature that did in April when I went. The base was full, up nobody did not.
