Cabildo de Purmamarca, Purmamarca

#9 of 14 in Things to do in Purmamarca
A social, cultural, and architectural icon of its city, Cabildo de Purmamarca represents a traditional 19th-century administrative building. Note the idiosyncratic structure's arched gallery and stout adobe walls--double the thickness of most other buildings in the area. You may notice it's a little sunk: over time, erosion has left it some 30 cm (11 in) below street level. The smallest cabildo in Argentina, it is considered one of ten remaining traditional councils in the country and has served as municipal headquarters, a police station, and a library. Though you probably won't get cell phone reception in the area, there is a pay phone--carry your important numbers with you.

  • In front of the square is this small lobby of the mid-19th century. Inside is the tourist office, where I asked what year it was built but only gave me the data of the middle of following. There's usually some exhibition, this time they were paintings. Access is free of charge.

  • Not bad, it's an old town hall. Preserved as everything in the village. Pay attention to the roofs of the Recova.
