  • Catamarca's landscape with multiple shades of green! From past held this view. Above the Hill Ancasti, after a complicated slope management, you reach the viewpoint. From there you can read the zamba landscape of Catamarca and check his lyric verse to verse. You can see the central Valley in all its splendor. If all climbs the slope going eastward can lower towards the Ancasti Department, and enjoy the beauty of the village of Anquincila. A quiet place where can continue enjoying nature green palette. If you feel adventurous you can continue towards La Villa Ancasti, visit an old chapel and Mills River.
