  • Very nice tour, stubborn and narrow, paved up to above, but there are areas of care that hardly pass two opposing vehicles. Try not to go when there are clouds, lost much to see.

  • A must visit when you go to Catamarca. Calmly began the climb with my family up to the main viewpoint where there is a place to eat. Then down we stopped at the other inns that are to make a compritas and aerial photos of the city. All very nice.

  • Beautiful views of the hills and the city of San Fernando. It is a winding road with tight curves, some parts do not pass two vehicles and we must turn back. Not suitable for novice drivers or for people with vertigo. In the middle there is a viewpoint and atop the lodge, which has a balcony with a beautiful view also and café-restaurant.
