El Chasqui, San Miguel de Tucuman

(3.4/5 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.

  • The landscape and the path is something beautiful, through the jungle of Tucumán. But not worth a stop to see the monument or to take pictures.

  • Beautiful option to stop road to the Valley. A place of great landscape, a craft fair that tempts anyone to carry a souvenir of Tucumán. From that point it begins to breathe the fresh air of the mountain, bordering the Los Sosa River makes you feel the warmth of the landscape. Highly recommended place

  • 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
