Sights

There’s little to see in town (though sunsets are spectacular) but 16km to the west is the impressive viaduct at La Polvorilla, the last stop of the Tren a las Nubes rail trip. You can climb up a zigzag path to the top and walk across it. Remises (taxis) in San Antonio charge about AR$300 for the return journey.

Sleeping

Lodging is rather basic in this rare air.

Eating

Simple restaurants dot Belgrano, and are good bets for empanadas, milanesas (breaded cutlets) and other local staples.

Drinking & Nightlife

The nightlife in this small, down-on-its-luck mining town is the sound of the cold Andean wind whistling through the empty streets.
