  • Imposing monument of stone and metal, with the General Martín MIGUEL DE GÜEMES guarding the city of Salta

  • He already knew a visit earlier to Salta and a dignified and well-deserved tribute had I found to Guemes. It is one of the places to which all tourists to take pictures. This time my attention the neglected this monument: source feels that it does not work quite out of the weeds that grew it. A shame!

  • It is located at a height and so strategically that one feels like until today in day Güemes monitors and protects his people. It is imposing and its construction and design are magnificent.
