Salta image

The region around Salta and Jujuy was the first to be settled by the Spanish. Apart from the colonial architecture there are also many pre-Hispanic ruins from the Inca period. Salta itself has many fine churches and is a centre for the sugar cane industry.

The Tren a las Nubes, or Train to the Clouds, normally runs from April to November, and reaches an altitude of 3,952 metres. This used to be one of South America’s most spectacular journeys but now only runs over a very short section from San Antonio de los Cobres to the Polvorilla viaduct.
