  • the truth is a pretty poor market, certain posts in a place away from the Center with crafts that you can easily get at the Center, no vale la pena ir

  • The building is beautiful and that is only worthwhile, cross it and take to eat a rich pie in the Tearoom. On handicrafts, there are several groups of artisans who honestly presented their excellent works, but others are not just craftsmen only sellers... but bueh! There are many products in silver, alpaca, wool that are worth.

  • Very good place, shops offer very good quality items, according to the quality of the offered price. It's not cheap. Outside, in the side streets, there are other trades, lower prices and lower quality. Excellent typical restaurant. Good price, is no luxury. But he eats well.

  • The place has several jobs. People serving is very attentive and the prices are very good. They have good quality products. The place has parking and there is a tearoom where you can take something or even eat some food regional. The place has an interesting history and is linked to the history of the Mill House.

  • All very nice as always, but it would be good on this page tell also that the Government of Salta is trying to evict all the artisans of this place if give them no place to relocate them. All this to make new ventures with this historic building. Always the same. Rulers going back of silver and trampling people.

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.
