Cabildo de Purmamarca, Purmamarca

A social, cultural, and architectural icon of its city, Cabildo de Purmamarca represents a traditional 19th-century administrative building. Note the idiosyncratic structure's arched gallery and stout adobe walls--double the thickness of most other buildings in the area. You may notice it's a little sunk: over time, erosion has left it some 30 cm (11 in) below street level. The smallest cabildo in Argentina, it is considered one of ten remaining traditional councils in the country and has served as municipal headquarters, a police station, and a library. Though you probably won't get cell phone reception in the area, there is a pay phone--carry your important numbers with you.

  • Features odd: it is small and it seems that you are undiendo to the Earth. As retaining original features, it is of the few places so they remain in the country.

  • The cabildo is very cute, but is closed. You can only observe from the outside and take a few pictures there.
