Museo Posta de Los Hornillos, Tilcara

If you’re a history or architecture buff, make a point to stop by Museo Posta de Los Hornillos. Built in 1772, the postal station dates from the colonial era and was an important station in the battle for independence. Visit the museum inside to view relics from colonial times, including art, furniture, weapons, and tools. Many heroes of the independence rested here after battling against the royalists, such as General Manuel Belgrano. You can view some interesting letters belonging to Belgrano, as well as the bed he slept in while he was there. A small chapel stands nearby as well, but it can only be viewed from the outside. Museo Posta de Los Hornillos is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Province of Jujuy Edition.

  • The natural environment is incredible, quiet. Of just being there one can imagine the historical facts that we have studied in school and everything makes more sense. It is very well preserved and little intervened, which makes it interesting. While the Lord that we attended could tell us some small details in the entry, and to dismiss it, as a suggestion, it would be interesting to have a guide in certain sectors, to assess or further sizing the place, events and objects.

  • Beautiful building that tells a piece of history. We imagine people arrive at horse at the end of a long journey to rest and regain strength before hitting the road. The building is beautiful, the interesting visit, the very atmosphere. I loved.
