Plaza 9 de Julio, Purmamarca

When you need a break from sightseeing, Plaza 9 de Julio provides a place to rest. Vendors, artisan shops, and cafes surround this square, where locals and tourists alike gather to people-watch and sip coffee. It's a good place to pick up souvenirs too, as prices tend to be cheaper at these stalls and the goods include hand-crafted, one-of-a-kind products. If you are feeling exploratory, walk away from the square down any of the connecting streets for even more vendors. Go in the morning for the best selection.

  • And if your not superias indicate that century are? The square gives this feeling. In addition to street food and crafts, you can enjoy a nice view of the mountains.

  • A square surrounded by stalls of artisans. Front is the Church and the Centennial carob tree. Type 20 hs are craftsmen and is all dark. For a last ride

  • The plaza is a natural 'tourist trap' with locals trying to sell their colourful artisans to tourists who are there to see the 7 colour mountain.
  • Lively and colorful main square with hundreds off souvenir stands. You get everything from llama keychains to pillow cases, all to fair prices. Delicious torta asadas can be bought for 30 pesos in every corner of the square. There are often live music and locals dancing or drinking beer nearby, fun to watch!
  • Nice place and the wife loved all the little shop around
  • Dozens of stalls and shops all selling the same things. How do they make a living? However it's lively and very colourful with all the wonderfully coloured scarves and towels. The main reason to visit is to see the Cerro de Seite Colors. Hill of 7 colours which is just behind the plaza. That is amazing
  • I love Purmamarca! It's a magic place.
