  • Monument to Gral. Don Martín Miguel de Güemes is a very expensive place to the Salta. Place of gaucho tribute to June 17, vigil under the stars followed by a civic military parade, allowing to pay well-deserved tribute who was a fundamental pillar in the fight for the Independendencia. It is a meeting place for sports and it moves. Preferred by brides and quinceañeras for your special photo. At the foot of Cerro San Bernardo, rises the imposing figure of the Gaucho hero, that it seems that you still watch the enemy with noble poise. They had to fencing with gates sculptures by the continuous looting the bronze of his figures. During the day it is open and you can access it. It very nice view of the Paseo Güemes and the huge cross the Congress Eucharistic national, which was held in Salta.
