  • Located in a central area of Tilcara, daily are the stalls with all kinds of presents. Some very good others fail with pint of regional industrial objects, but the experienced eye can discover beautiful things in that place.

  • I love to travel but this kind of place is few and far between. On weekend evenings during holidays there is music and dancing in the center of the park. The bands were quite good and I enjoyed the atmosphere and crowd. Salta is a very nice town, there is local Argentine tourism and not too many of us Americans.
  • Muchos puestos. Las artesanías son industrializadas.
  • Beautiful beautiful... a caress to the soul

  • Small and compact Plaza. It is very nice. Apart from being small, still it seems it more, because it's full of shops selling regional items around the perimeter of the square. They are too many, and against the view of the plaza.

  • I love the ambiance of this small central square of Tilcara with its feria daily. Well maintained.
