If Argentine history interests you, plan a stop at Monumento General Martín Miguel de Güemes. The monument is dedicated to General Martin Miguel de Guemes, a hero of Argentine independence and governor of Salta Province. The imposing monument showcases a statue of the general on top and additional details on the sides. The landmark monument was erected in 1931 in the location where the general fell off his horse as he sustained a bullet wound (which he died from several days later).

  • It is a beautiful statue of +-25 meters located in the plaza of the ride. Perhaps it is not enough to pay tribute to a hero of the fatherland. It was located at the time in a place away, today absorbed by the expansion of the city, since it was not wanted by the local oligarchy. Worth seeing it and try to understand what this young Patriot did!

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.
