  • Very cute place! We love this landscape. Read the legend of by this name and turned out very interesting to us. Impossible not to stop to take pictures.

  • Tres Cruces is seated in the Highlands, and in turn is the apex of the incredible Quebrada de Humahuaca. This makes the climate, orography and landscape a transition between the Gorge and Puna regions. Near here are the headwaters of the river big. In the area there are important mineral deposits of lead, silver and zinc. Stands out the Serranía de Tres Cruces by its colorful formation of sedimentary folds, as it is known, between 65 and 1.8 million years, which, as you pointed out in other reviews, is called "The Devil's backbone".

  • From Humahuaca by route 9 and camino to the quiaca, in three crosses, we found the Devil's backbone, colorful formations of sedimentary folds. Excellent place for a photographic zafari, which changes according to the time of day.
