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.

    A curious attraction. A small town hall opposite the plaza of Purmamarca. It is notable for its size and history. Today it functions as a library and enter cultural.

    Facing the main square, today all its perimeter streets are pedestrian, the old cabildo of Purmamarca is located, with its arches that look like miniatures line with their openings worth visiting it transformed into a Museum, shows us the importance of this locality in the past I visit 31 years ago and the adaptation to provide convenience to tourists without that losing its essence is striking
