  • The monument, which rises on a hill in the town of Humahuaca, awakens feelings of Fatherland and freedom. The mestizo nobleman who moves with the cry of independence represents the feat of all the northern people who knew how to interpret magnificently heroic ideal. Easy access despite their various steps. I recommend surround the monument to visualize the emancipatory gesture.

  • This monument is huge and towers over the town. It is not very interesting in itself but is worth a visit if only to see the sheer size of it. The views from the top are also spectacular.  more »
  • Beautiful monument that honors the heroes of the fatherland. The jujenos, most other people are proud of their historical past and do nothing but talk about,(si se les pregunta), of the important role they played in the struggle for the liberation of the homeland.

  • 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.
