The neighbouring cities of Salta and Cordoba, well almost ….as they are 700 km apart! are beautiful colonial cities in the north of Argentina. Salta is found in the foothills of The Andes and is famous for its wine and parrillas. They farm a lot of the Argentinian beef in this area and the gaucho influence is evident, as well as the Spanish colonial influence. Juyuy is next to Salta and offers a totally different perspective of the North of Argentina. While Cordoba is a much bigger city and more industrial than Salta, Juyuy is totally off the beaten track remoteness, Although these 3 destinations are close by, they have their different and individual charms, making the North west of Argentina an excellent part of the country to visit.
