The north of Argentina is filled with tradition; it is in the north where the true Argentine people are. First, it was the native peoples and then, the conquistadores, they all contributed to a mixture of races that gave birth to the identity of the men and women now living on these lands. The way they talk, their music, their dances and even their clothes make Salta people special, serene, cordial and nice.
The province of Salta has diverse landscapes: an arid desert to the west and a luxuriant jungle to the east, with valleys and gorges in the middle.
The Train to the Clouds made Salta known as a tourist destination, but the place is actually the gateway to all the north-western attractions of Argentina.
