Sophisticated Salta is a favorite of many travelers, smoothing ruffled psyches with its profusion of services, engaging active minds with its outstanding museums, and lighting romantic candles with its plaza-side cafes and the live música folklórica of its popular peñas. It offers the facilities of a large town, retains the comfortable vibe of a smaller place and preserves more colonial architecture than most places in Argentina.
Founded in 1582, it’s now the most touristed spot in northwest Argentina, and has numerous accommodation options. The center bristles with travel and tour agents: this is the place to get things organized for onward travel.
