  • A must-see if you in Catamarca. The road is narrow, only suitable for cars and motorbikes (micros quite dangerous). The view is beautiful, ideal for taking photos and appreciate nature. Recommended!

  • It is a narrow and winding road of about 20 km from cornice on the Sierra de Ancasti, and although asphalted, has many bends (not suitable for who suffer from vertigo). Amounts in the mountains through beautiful landscapes and postcards, which leads travellers to get panoramic views of the central valley of Catamarca, and that by its thousand different shades of green, they inspired Polo Giménez to compose the famous zamba: "Landscape of Catamarca", which speaks of this "long road which falls and is lost...", (a monument with plates in-situ remember it) The aforementioned also owns the Lodge located at the top of the same hill. On the issue of the Sun, it is suggested to ascend the slope in the morning. We got to the first viewpoint, from whose balconies are unbeatable views of the city. Also are stationed there, sellers of regional products in the area. It is a must-see and must visit who come to San Fernando.
