    It brings together various cooperatives of craftsmen which gives quality seal and certifies that everything that is sold in the market of ARTISANAL and industrial non- as it can be found in other places that claim to sell "crafts". I recommend go all the posts, also you can eat very good food artisan in the bar on the market. Very nice colonial architecture on the market.

    The place is good to have high-quality handicrafts. I went through the tourist bus coming from plaza 9 de julio. Unfortunately the driver of this bus recommends not to buy in the market of craftsmen. But in outside businesses. According to the are cheaper... Which is true, but outside are of very low quality.

    Nice... care building. Many premises with good products and prices. Away from the Center, but can be accessed with local buses, line 5A, prior acquisition of local card SAETA, as the rises of Buenos Aires. Highly recommended trip.

    A variety of handicrafts, not so much in sweets and wines! All impeccable and friendly. You have to go by car because it is away from the Centre, but at the turn I decided to walk to learn more about the ciudad😆

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.
