Founded in 1582, the city is actually located in the southernmost region of the Inca Empire. Salta was known for being the starting point of the “Train to the Clouds” or Tren a las Nubes, and conveniently situated along the way to nearby destinations such as Cafayate.

These gorgeous rock formations can be found along the drive from Salta to Cafayate. Not only gorgeous, but these caves also provide amazing acoustics – and if you’re lucky, you may just be able to enjoy a local musician giving a live performance.
