Cerro San Bernardo, Salta
(4.3/5 based on 2,200+ reviews on the web)
Hike or take a cable car up to Cerro San Bernardo for sweeping views over town. Rising 285 m (935 ft) above the city, the hill once stood as an island in a prehistoric sea--as evidenced now by a huge number of fossils and geological layers under its surface. A funicular from the city's central square whisks you up to the summit, where the plain and surrounding hills form an expansive landscape. Alternatively, tackle the 1,000-plus steps to the top of the hill. Keep an eye out for city landmarks like churches and stadiums emerging below. Plan your visit to Cerro San Bernardo and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Salta travel itinerary maker.

  • very well organized, clean, and excellent views. When subis Hill there is a tearoom to take something fresh, bargain view, but nothing more than that.
