  • Santa Rosa de Tastil - Located in the 110 km of capital jump and 3110 ms.nm is located Santa Rosa de Tastil. It houses a community of 13 people and its main hull has two blocks of extension. There we can find two Museums, the main being the Tastil Site Museum and the second a private museum of a localised villager. In the small center is the church of Santa Rosa de Lima, which inside exhibits some objects used in the religious ceremonies of the place. Handicraft stalls and some infusions are located along its two blocks. Bathrooms are available for $10. From this point you can make the excursion to the Ruins of Tastil, which are part of the Qhapaq'n, Andean road system. In 2014 they were registered as a cultural asset by UNESCO. The Ruins of Tastil are evidence of the largest pre-Columbian city located in present-day Argentina. Visiting this small settlement is a beautiful experience; visiting the Site Museum is a must if you pass through the area.

  • One of the most important archaeological sites in the north of the country, because it preserves the remains of a village inhabited until the fifteenth century by the Tastil population, pre-Inca population. The site is also not far from the local railway station of the legendary Tren a las Nubes, one of the highest railways in the world.
