For a sweeping view of the town and valley, head up to the miradores (viewpoints) overlooking town. Taxis charge around AR$150 to take you to the Mirador del Sol, halfway up the mountain, and then another 12km to the Mirador de los Condores, which is on top of the mountain ridge, and gives views in both directions.
