Highlights of Excursion To Chilecito And Cuesta De Miranda


With this tour we will learn more about the importance of La Rioja in Argentine history, as well as admire its beautiful landscapes.

We will know the city of Chilecito along with its impressive slopes, visiting the stations of the cable lane and the mines where at the beginning of the 20th century the greatest activity of the area was concentrated: the mining of gold, silver and copper.
