Excursion to Humahuaca Canyon
In 2003 the Humahuaca Canyon, called in spanish “Quebrada de Humahuaca” was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. So, this is one of the most important excursions that will take us from Salta through the province of Jujuy to visit and visit its charming landscapes and towns and travel almost 10,000 years of history.
From south to north, the Quebrada de Humahuaca is born in Volcán, where the mountains abruptly abandon the green and give way to other and brown mountain ranges. Without leaving the contour of the Rio Grande, you arrive at the town of Tumbaya, which shelters its beautiful church built-in 1796. When deviating by National Route No. 52, you enter Purmamarca, a town of legends and singers, which has a church dedicated to Santa Rosa de Lima dating from 1648. The town of Purmamarca has been built at the foot of the internationally known “Cerro de Siete Colores” or 7-color hill.
The tour continues through Tilcara where you visit its Pucará (old indigenous fortress), now rebuilt, it is a palpable example of the splendor of its ancient inhabitants, the tilcaras. Towards the North, after passing through Huacalera and the Tropic of Capricorn, we arrive at Uquía, which houses one of the most important collections of the famous “Arcabuceros Angels” in its Church, emblematic examples of Cuzco painting.
The city of Humahuaca, the very heart of the Quebrada, awaits the visitor full of natural, historical, and cultural attractions. Among the latter, the Monument to the Heroes of Independence and the articulated image of San Francisco Solano stand out, which every noon makes its appearance in the central square to bless the people. The tour ends in Salta, drop off in your hotel.
