El Chasqui, San Miguel de Tucuman
(3.5/5 based on 95 reviews on the web)
Pay a visit to the statue of El Chasqui, which celebrates an essential part of Incan history. The chasquis were a team of highly trained, agile, and speedy messengers tasked with delivering important messages and orders throughout the Inca empire. Sometimes running unbelievable distances of 240 km (149 mi), the chasquis had a set of rules and equipment to maximize efficiency. Pay special attention to this statue's representation of the quipu (a kind of pouch where they carried written information based on a set of codes), and pututua (a kind of trumpet to sound clarion calls). It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to El Chasqui and many more San Miguel de Tucuman attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's San Miguel de Tucuman itinerary planner.

  • Opinions on the significance of the statue differ, there is a set of stalls of handicrafts that resulted from price more well-to-do enclosing in Tafí del Valle, in weekdays before 6 pm, keep that in mind if you decide to buy on the return trip to San Miguel de Tucumán

  • The truth, a forced stop if you make this journey: the view is great. In addition there are street vendors with crafts.

  • After crossing an impressive place of curves and curves with dense vegetation arrive at 1000 meters and we have a huge monument to the calchaqui Indian. The place is very cute. There are sales of fine crafts and at good price. There is health.
