  • Iruya

Iruya is a little town situated almost 350 kilometers away from Salta City that seems to be hanging from the mountains and suspended in time. It is 2780 m.s above the sea level, and stands on a promontory in the valley of the Iruya river. The road to Iruya has thousands of breathtaking landscapes. The town keeps its steep, narrow streets paved with stones and the thatched houses as well as the customs and clothes of 250 years ago. In its environs you can find the pre-Columbian ruins of Titiconte. One of its main attractions are the religious celebrations, like the celebration of the Pachamama, where the pagan and the sacred are mixed.
