Landmark Tourist Spot
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.
