The cable car service starts at Cerro San Bernardo in Salta and at an altitude of more than 800 feet above the ground takes you to the hills and the valleys across the countryside at Salta and gets you back in a ten-minute round trip. While this is not exactly downtown Salta, enjoy the marvellous journey up the hills without getting out – literally!
The Salta Municipality and the Museum of Hispanic History is housed at the Cabildo monument and is a structure of national significance. While there are many arcades and shopping plazas outside the Cabildo, the inside takes just an hour to tour and you’ll be left to enjoy the pace and frenzy of the town square here. Salta car hire is a must if you want to pack as much as possible into your day.
First constructed as a Chapel in the 17th century, then converted into a public service hospital and now a convent, you can find the Catholic nuns practicing the ‘language of silence’ in this spectacular Convent.
