After picking you up from your hotel, we`ll head by bus to the city center to listen to an expert guide share the history of Salta. Founded in the 16th century by the Spanish visionary Hernando de Lerma, Salta became a very successful commercial center. See evidence of Salta`s heyday in the gold-plated cathedrals and mansions as the vehicle tours the city. Today, the city of Salta is known for its beautiful and well-preserved colonial architecture.

When you reach the central plaza, contemplate the grandiose Salta Cathedral, with two towers, built in 1885, and learn about the national hero General Güemes, whose remains rest in the cathedral; Güemes fought against the Spanish during Argentina`s war of independence.

Passing through the Cultural Center of the Americas, observe the Spanish colonial architecture of the viceroyalty of Historical Museum of the North, located in the old town hall or town hall.
