Highlights / General details
In the gentle hills of the Lerma Valley we find Salta, the capital city of the Homonimous Province and one of the most fertile sites blessed by nature. The city sits at an altitude of nearly 4,000 feet (1,187 m) above sea level where it is watched over by Mount 20 de Febrero and Mount San Bernardo.
The Hispanic influence in Salta is clear from the architecture of the city which stands out vividly from other cities throughout the country. The colonial spirit of Argentina’s modern foundation remains strong in the city’s homes, streets, monuments and narrow sidewalks.
