A few weeks ago we went to Salta for a couple of days. We enjoyed the town, food (“empanadas”, “humitas”, “tamales”), wine and spectacular views … and yes, for many reasons it is called “Salta La Linda”;)
If you want to travel with us, here are some photos. Enjoy!
We arrived on a Friday night and after checking in at The Balcony of the Plaza Hotel we went to have dinner in a traditional restaurant. A night of “tamales” :) and “empanadas” aswell! : D
We went to go around the city on Saturday. The hotel is very well located so we were able to walk around the main square and surrounding areas. In the afternoon, we did the city tour and ended the day eating “empanadas” and tamales, of course,… It could not be otherwise! ;)
We went to Quebrada de Humahuaca in Jujuy on Sunday . We toured Tilcara, Purmamarca and Humahuaca. Colonial houses, artisans on the sidewalk and a unique landscape. Best of all, Violeta behaved wonderfully! :) It was a long but beautiful day!
We left towards Cafayate on Monday. We rented a car and went out to the road without imagining that we would see a dreamed landscape. The last 80 km before reaching Cafayate are a must to go. The view is beautiful, no words to describe it. On the way back the next day, we made that journey in the late afternoon and I do not know if it was the light, the time of day or the clear sky that made the view even more beautiful.
Before returning to Salta city, we walked around Cafayate on Tuesday. We left the car and the bags at the Vicuña Hotel and went for a walk through the quiet streets. We visited Domingo Hermanos vineyard that it is located in the city.
At lunchtime, we chose Piatelli vineyard (fools, eh!). We ate delicious and at good price. To complete the afternoon in the cellar, we did the vineyard tour that ended with a tasting of premium wines (more than fools, eh!). and yes, we had a great time! :)
It was cloudy and rainy on Wednesday. We went to visit the Cabildo and buy some souvenirs. We finished our stay in Salta playing at the local shopping. Violeta enjoyed it very much. She behaved so so so good during the whole trip, she deserved it and more! ;)
