  • Following our tour through the province of Catamarca, and after our stay in Bethlehem, we will heading to Fiambala. So take the route national 60 with the interncion to move the so-called "path of Adobe": a circuit of about 50 kms from Tinogasta until the entrance to Fiambala, in which are located several picturesque villages, forming a tourist corridor with adobe buildings of several centuries, between houses, churches and chapels, amidst a wonderful natural landscape environment estates of crops and a great silence. Receives its name since its main buildings and many of their family homes are solid and aesthetically very well built with adobe: noble material and very solid thanks to the climate. By a decree, this route was included within the Cultural Heritage and tourism of the province of Catamarca, and among its buildings can be admired: Casagrande (Adobe Hotel in Tinogasta), the Cultural Center in the Oratory of the Orquera El Puesto, Mayorazgo, our Lady of the Rosary Church and Chapel ruins of Watungasta, Tinogasta in Anillaco, Church Nuestra Señora de Andacollo in La Falda , and the Church of San Pedro and weapons command, in Fiambala. This circuit is really a must-see of great importance in Catamarca, which worth crossing!
