Description

Discover colonial architecture, friendly citizens, and excellent natural scenery on a comprehensive walking tour of Salta—a charming city nestled into the Andean foothills. Follow your guide to the Salta Cathedral, the San Francisco Church, and the Alta Montaña Archeological Museum.

Meet your guide in the center of the city and begin to explore the northwestern Argentinian town that was founded in 1582. Head to the Salta Cathedral, an impressive 19th-century Neo-Baroque sanctuary, where you can admire its pink exterior and arched interior. Then, visit the San Francisco Church. Appreciate the religious institution's imposing bell tower and brilliant white columns before moving on.

Next, take in gorgeous views of the Andes on a walk past the Cabildo de Salta, a striking edifice that served as the headquarters for Spanish occupants during the colonial period. From here, travel to a market where you can shop for handmade souvenirs. Finally, choose to visit the Alta Montaña Archaeological Museum at your own expense, marveling at the breathtaking mummies of 3 Inca children that are believed to be more than 500 years old.
