  • Very interesting. Right near the town. Here the Spanish Jesuits were milling and casting of copper zinc silver and other minerals. Have a beautiful view to the mountains and is very close to the city. It is worth visiting.

  • After a long mountainous stretch arrived from Santiago in a lowland area. Uspallata is a small village that lies in the middle of the Cordilleras of the Andes, a large artificial oases formed by man, with lots of greenery in a place where the desert climate and even sites used for agriculture, which along with tourism are the main sources of income of the local population. The main street houses craft shops, wines, markets, hotels and other establishments and a small museum. Is the meeting point of some highways, has few hotels, hostels, restaurants and even a small Casino, which is legal in that district. We stopped at the restaurant Los Patos, where many tours stop also for lunch.
