The Province of Salta is located in the Northwest of Argentina, bordering with Chile , Bolivia and Paraguay. Salta is particularly attractive because of its geographic and climatic diversity: from the desert chill of the Andes and the Puna, to the jungle’s subtropical heat, passing through cool fertile valleys, mountains and rivers. Salta 's traditional friendliness blends with its vast cultural resonance. Its heritage is extensive and mixed: from ancient Diaguita-Calchaqui and Inca vestiges to the Spanish colonial legacy. These features can still be seen in the architecture of its villages, towns and in the city of Salta itself. Founded in 1582, Salta still bears a distinct Hispanic character that differentiate itself from other cities in the country, featuring colonial houses, narrow streets and pavements, and the brownish green of the hills surrounding the city. Nightlife in Salta is lively, varied and safe. Salteños and tourists alike meet in peñas, pubs, cafes, casinos and discos. Most of this activity is concentrated in the area around the train station, known as “La Balcarce”. Salteñan cuisine is assorted and multi-coloured. Visitors can indulge in the traditional “empanadas”, “locro” and “humitas”, as well as enjoy modern dishes made with local products such as corn, llama meat, quinoa, trout and pejerrey.
