Activities at Legado Mitico Salta

Salta is a charming city, combining pretty colonial architecture dating back to the 1500s with rich Andean folk culture. Particularly noteworthy are the city’s penas – folk clubs – where live performances go on deep into the night. These are good places to enjoy dinner to some live musical accompaniment. Also worth a visit is the excellent MAAM museum, where Incan life and culture is fascinatingly preserved, and the surrounding countryside, such as the multicoloured valley of Quebrada de Humahuaca.
