The Dry-lands, Mountains, and Culture of Salta, Argentina


Salta is the name of both the city and the region in the east of Argentina near Chile. Salta City is the site of Argentina's best colonial architecture, while the region of Salta is famous for wondrous views of polychromatic mountains and excellent vineyards.

One of the trully especial things about Salta is how quiet and undiscovered this city and region really are. Unlike some of the other destinations toured by hundreds of thousands of visitors per year, Salta remains authentic and unspoilt.
