Located on National Route 40 at approximately 70 kilometers from Cafayate, Angastaco is one of the most beautiful districts in the region.
Part of the Calchaquí Valleys, Angastaco is an ancient native population still preserved like in its zenith days in the Province of Salta.
Its name stands for "carob eagle" in the native language of the area. It is the access point for one of the most picturesque and well-known sites in the valleys of Salta: the so-called Quebrada de las Flechas (Arrows Ravine).
Situated within a mountain range of extreme beauty and crossed by the river bearing the same name, Angastaco is an invitation to spend the night and enjoy some of the most unthinkable nooks that dazzle visitors.
The "Grape and Foot-pressed Wine Festival" are some of the popular celebrations that have made up the agenda of the city for years. In addition to them, the Living Station of the Cross and the festival of the Virgin of the Valley are also held.
Its scenery has plenty of rocky formations, comprising hills and gorges that provide an exotic background for small towns to emerge in the Calchaquí Valleys Circuit.
Bearing a Pre-Hyspanic tradition and a cultural and philosophical legacy still evident in some of its denizens, Angastaco has everything to tempt visitors to stay longer, guaranteeing that they will enjoy unimaginable places from the very start.
