Trip Planner: South America / Argentina / Northern Argentina / Province of Jujuy / Purmamarca / Cabildo de 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.

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