PACHAMAMA’S WORSHIP
Historic Salta, founded in 1582, hill and strikingly beautiful district is a handsome city with fine old colonial buildings. Salta boasts a touch of elegance that is unmistakable symbol of a sumptuous past that is still alive in its large old manors and flowery patios. Among the big Argentine cities, this is the city where the Spanish influence is best preserved. It is located on the northern extreme of the Lerma Valley, at the foothill of the San Bernardo Hill, 1,280 meters (4,260 feet) above sea level.
All around the province of Salta nice pieces of pottery, basketry, knitted 'barracón' fabric, tapestries and 'ponchos' are produced, as well as music instruments. San Bernardo Hill offers, from its summit, a panoramic lookout over the city and the surrounding valley.
Salta is, undoubtedly, the main tourist center in the Northwest. From the city, anyone having a few spare day s can take the most important one-day tours, to places such as Cafayate, Cachi, the Humahuaca Gorge, or the Train to the Clouds.
