Salta the Beautiful
Salta boasts a vibrant social life and array of informative museums appealing to visitors looking for a memorable cultural experience. Founded in 1582, the city of around 600,000 people offers some of Argentina's best-preserved colonial architecture and serves as the primary base for holidaymakers in northwestern Argentina, with excellent tourist infrastructure accompanying old-world charm. Salta's cobbled streets hum with the sound of folk music, which spills from the many cafes and bars dotted throughout the city. A trip to Salta also offers a chance to explore the nature surrounding the city, which is famous for its colorful mineral rock formations. Plan your holiday in Salta and other destinations, from the rural, to the urban, and everything in between, using our Argentina day trip planning tool.
