  • The vaults of Uspallata can be visited during the day up early (around Central magnificent from 17:00 hs. close.) It is free and is more a place to visit with a bit of history. It was the place where gold and silver is melted and it was later used by General San Martín.

  • A "Museum" to visit pass, you see it in 20 minutes at most. Typical place of grout of things.

  • Long he related it with the crossing of San Martin, but in reality it was a mill, today is very well preserved! Free entrance and beautiful scenery

  • A waste of time to come here. The excellent guide explains you all and free. But the wheels of the car break you by the poor state of the road and there's not much to see. If you are looking for landscapes or large places don't miss time.

  • A small part of a big story, the vaults of Uspallata. It is tangible testimony of as in those times a few Patriots fundian what they had at hand to achieve this great goal. Fundamental part of the history of our country. Well preserved, very well attended, free. While looking at other museums could be even better.
