  • One of the most beautiful town plazas I've visited. On one side there is the beautiful cathedral, and the others museums, restaurants and cafés. Lively day and night!
  • A big beautiful plaza with a lot of trees and places town sit. Looks and feels different at different hours of the day (and night). The buildings surrounding it are very beautiful. If you visit Salta - don't miss this plaza.
  • It is the center of the city and there are always people around day and night. It is bordered by the Cathedral, a gallery and the Museum of Hugh altitude Archaeology, the Cabildo and a theater. Not to mention cafes, restaurants and hotels.
  • Ideal place to work out or simply hang out and admire the trees. Definitely a must of you are in Tres Cerritos.
  • Beautiful city, colonial buildings all over
