The City of Salta is an eye-catching destination in northern Argentina and its historical shell is one of the best preserved in the country. Its architecture shows an unmistakable mixture of Hispanic and Criollo roots, and its colonial traits are mingled with today's modern style, making up a scene in which museums, churches and historical buildings are combined with summer estates and natural attractions such as Campo Quijano, Cabra Corral Dam or Villa San Lorenzo Village.

Nightlife in the City of Salta is a most important attraction: its famous Balcarce Street and its peñas folklóricas (folklore clubs) are part of the cultural and recreational heritage for the different generations. Taking pride in their customs and traditions, the denizens of Salta pay tribute to Güemes' Gauchos and religious celebrations every year. Lerma Valley is watched over by Mounts San Bernardo (featuring the cable car) and Mount 20 de Febrero, famous for its productive activities, such as cattle raising, tobacco and sugar cane crops.
