San Antonio de los Cobres, San Antonio de los Cobres

Stop off at San Antonio de los Cobres to see the charming architecture of a remote settlement, and meet its equally charming residents. Located in the Andes, the dusty little town offers a number of cultural attractions, including a house that keeps llamas, and a quaint church. Snap photos of the simple, squat houses against the barren, mountainous backdrop. You'll get offered plenty of souvenirs during your visit, with much of the local industry now geared towards tourism. That said, the town offers authentic food, with a number of small restaurants and cafes serving local specialties.

  • Argentine outpost in Northwest of the country, hosts (va) many troops to defend the border, when relations with Chile were very strained. It was also an important railway station on the line from Salta to the Chilean port of Antofagasta. But this railroad has lost all its importance. Whereby the country drags lazy and quiet, living on memories. Good starting point for many excursions in the surroundings, the Puna Argentina.
