  • The palette colors are visible from route 9 in Maimara or entering this charming village where it can be seen from closer. This Maimará Tilcara and Purmamarca

  • Maimará village is one of the cute and preserved Slam of the Gorge, worth a visit as well as the hill that changes color with the Sun (best at sunset, when they notice more varied colors), its inhabitants are a charm of humility and hospitality from the cultural point of view is the House-Museum of the great philosopher, I say socio-antropologo , University Professor and author of a work on AMERICAPROFUNDA, name of one of his books a vast work on "living being" of the Andean culture, this great man indispensable to understand Abya Yala as call to America, it was called Günter Rodolfo Kusch, lived in Bs. As. and then he spent his last years in Maimara after going through almost all the NOA and Bolivia, Peru, in addition to European countries by making known the American thought. Was Professor the Prilidiano Pueyrredón, the University of Salta etc. was funneled in the academies like Marechal for his thinking close to peronism. Elizabeth Lanata of Kusch wife still lives in the same House of Lavalle Street s/n in Maimara one block from route 9 the Museum is worthwhile because it is the place of the study of Kusch and library is being classified by the people of the University of 3 February. Neighbors are proudly maimarenos; Josefina who is Weaver, coplera and knowledgeable curator of weeds, as "pechito" Lopez the storekeeper nut, Doña Nila owner of "the vineyards" restaurant-accommodation that has good kitchen dona Nelly as the owner of "the House of Tata" nice accommodations with tasteful and well Northern style. Ah! with gourmet food. their sauteed flame with small potatoes and goat cheese and flan of quinoa are second to none. Don't forget to visit Maimará 5 km before Tilcara to Humahuaca
