Alto la Viña is a privileged area lying a few minutes away from the heart of the City of San Salvador de Jujuy. It features natural balconies over the Grande River ravine.
There stands the Pasquini López Museum and Cultural Center, surrounded by a diversity of ecosystems on Cerro Azul (Blue Hill), the location of Los Perales neighborhood.
The museum houses collections representing the most outstanding aspects and moments in the history of human presence in the region.
Partly, the material displayed comes from a line of investigation carried out by the members of the scientific research group called Yavi. Managers of the center, they are essentially devoted to interdisciplinary studies on the cultural and natural ecosystems in the region in order to make them available to the community.
Diverse techniques (rock carving, pottery, bone, metal, etc.) typical of the several human groups that populated this territory may be appreciated at the venue.

An interesting collection
The museum treasures an interesting collection of ethnographic materials especially from Northern Argentina, Bolivia and Peru. Most of them belong to the Califano Collection. In addition, there are other unique materials from other countries. An extraordinary photograph collection represents highly valuable information.
At present, the museum experts are working on the construction of a life-size replica of a Guaraní housing unit, according to the information compiled in the late 19th century.
