Salta the Beautiful

Salta boasts a vibrant social life and array of informative museums appealing to visitors looking for a memorable cultural experience. Founded in 1582, the city of around 600,000 people offers some of Argentina's best-preserved colonial architecture and serves as the primary base for holidaymakers in northwestern Argentina, with excellent tourist infrastructure accompanying old-world charm. Salta's cobbled streets hum with the sound of folk music, which spills from the many cafes and bars dotted throughout the city. A trip to Salta also offers a chance to explore the nature surrounding the city, which is famous for its colorful mineral rock formations.
