    A large monument to Gral Guemes located on an Esplanade facing a beautiful Avenue. It is a place to meet as part of the history of Salta and their heroes.

    Nice place to walk, Matt and photos. The monument is impressive rodedado of stones and trees that they make an ideal space to visit. If they are walking down the street look at mosaics with arrows on the paths which indicate where in the monument.

    General overlooking his city. Impressive life story of this Saltan hero. He was the leader of non-regular army who defended northwestern Argentina from the spanish during the independence war.

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.
