  • In a place of privilege, acting as symbol, this ancient carob, presides over the life of the commercial core of Purmamarca. Everything happens to her around, and retailers offer their handicrafts in spectrum organized and well fitted for the thousands of tourists who come every day to buy something that represents them. In this place the time does not pass, enjoy it as it is, as it offers us. This is the spirit of the North.

  • Only carob perhaps does not say much, but it is next to the Church of the 1600 and to other very old carob trees which makes it really appealing.

  • It is opposite the main square, it isn't very flashy but feels that there passed many years of history. More than the tree, the place is significant.
