  • Square July 9 is the hub of the central part of the city, to its about to find restaurants, agencies for tours, ice-cream parlours, shops, attractions, etc. Concerts and cultural events held here. Very cute.

  • We have done and have a drink on the terrace in the Sun an hour the animation at the Park. Spend time just fine. Young people that breakdancing, locals that are trying to sell fruit, ice cream etc. Walk a lot of people over, nice to see. Before we walked a round of neerploften of course and the beautiful buildings and visited Cathedral. If you're in Salta, sure stop by running to the urban atmosphere with it.

Where to stay in Salta

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.
