  • It is the first time we went to humahuaca to carnival time with my family. Something unique happened to me with this little town so beautiful and nostalgic at the same time, it seems that time stands with its cobbled passages, its square, its church, its so friendly people and above all the respect they have for his people, is definitely a very good place to find peace

  • Large sculptural group in tribute to the heroes of independence. It will then go up about 100 steps (can be overwhelming for those who are not accustomed to the height) by a staircase flanked by posts of regional vendors and other not so much. It is a nice walk which at its highest point offers good views of the landscapes humahuaquenos.

  • This is a typical monument of adobe and mud in the North of Argentina. It is much more cute which is in front of it.

  • Impresiona
  • Symbolic monument. It is a large monument that carries no more 15 minute visit him. We go up, we get a couple of photo and ready. It is not so important if we don't have much time (although visit it is a matter of a few minutes).
