    We stopped for a delicious dessert of cheese and honey in this place coffee because it caught our attention its architecture. It is a castle that belonged to an Italian family in its origins and that 35 years is owned by an American who settled in Salta. It is hotel and restaurant. They showed us the rooms which are very spacious and very well restored while retaining the spirit of the place. The gardens are beautiful and it has a swimming pool. Extremely friendly staff.

    A great venue for a reception. A little slow with the drink service, but otherwise perfect.

    The most historic site in quebrada de San Lorenzo. In tourist information service does not give data on this place, but it is very one of the most interesting and picturesque place. There is an interesting interesting history behind the Castle. The food is very accessible and the place very comfortable and pleasant to eat.
