  • The truth is that the monument and the street that leads to he, as the location, are very cute and are visit forced if is visit the city of jumps, addition to was and is a personality important for any Argentine and pturistas to which les interest our history, it is more for them Salta, so not understand by that this so careless the place , especially surrounding (badly cut grass, some of trash and more sad is that saw many dogs Street in bad health, really sad). For the others, you should go and at night it looks even more beautiful illuminated with some special luminaires. It would recommend of night mainly.

  • It is very nice to take a few mates and have a very nice view of the city. At night it is very well lit. From here access to the staircases can be up to the cerro San Bernardo. Back is the anthropological museum.
