Calchaquí Valleys

Going on the famous roundtrip around the Calchaquí Valleys is a must for all those who wish to see Argentina. Well-known for its vineyards and wineries, the City of Cafayate perfectly represents the spirit of the region, completed by the small village of Cachi. The latter is a sample of the hundreds of halmets and settlements that shelter barely a handful of dwellers but succeed in captivating visitors with their looms, handicrafts, cheese and adobe constructions.

The centennial museums and churches are reminiscent of the passing of the Incas and the Jesuits through the area. Las Conchas Ravine, the famed Amphitheater and the Devil's Throat are just three of the hundreds of rock formations that render visitors speechless and with weary eyes after beholding so much beauty.
