    Fantastic road, a must for those who, like me, like slopes, recommend, the view of the whole valley of Catamarca is exciting!

    It is a pleasure to be able to have done the slope (roundtrip) recognize that it weighs much the folk tradition. But it is worthwhile to get to the top!

    A beautiful walk. The slope is pronounced and narrow road. Place to visit with care. The view is wonderful, the river can be seen (I think called Ambato) and throughout the city. At the end of the promenade there is a hostel where you can take something good and rich though to space sandwich lacks maintenance. My and recommended the promenade.
