    Santa Bárbara Tower formed part of a Jesuit Chapel (which no longer exists). It is located on the side of the monument to the Heroes of independence, at the top of the stairs. Is surrounded by vegetation, mainly cacti. It is a beautiful sight, typical of Humahuaca. Square, teeming with vendors of crafts and the chapel can be seen from the top. All framed in the magnificent mountains of colors.
