4.8
#3 of 27 in Parks in Province of Salta
Hear the difference at El Anfiteatro (The Amphitheatre), a large semi-enclosed rock formation renowned for its acoustics. Situated in Cafayate's La Quebrada valley, known for many impressive rock formations, the amphitheater is a large gap between the rocks with a completely flat floor and a rotund shape. Visit the grandiose natural formation and see the 20 m (65 ft) reddish stone walls that allow the sound to reverberate freely. Try out the acoustics of the place by yourself, or enjoy one of the live music performances that very often take place here. El Anfiteatro (The Amphitheatre) is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Salta Edition.

  • Really impressive natural rock formation, with some guys playing music inside. A must-see if you are in the area.
  • Beautiful but too many sales people
  • Amazing work of nature. The not so cool thing is all the vendor occupying the place, but they are not even going to offer things unless you're interested, so there's no hassle.
  • Cool place. Worthy of a stop.
  • I slept without a tent in the middle of the amphitheater during a hitchhiking trip and it was absolutely amazing. Coolest place I've spent the night in so far. I took the bus from Salta to Cafayate and asked the bus driver to let me off here. At 10pm it would have been impossible to find my way inside without a flashlight.

Where to stay in Salta

Salta's status as the tourist hub of northwestern Argentina means that a wide array of accommodations has sprung up throughout the city. The majority are concentrated around the city's grid-like center, surrounding Plaza 9 de Julio. For something more relaxed and closer to nature, go southeast and explore the area around Parque San Martin. You can opt for anything from a healthy range of budget accommodations, including hostels and small guesthouses, all the way to luxury hotels.
