  • From this square you can go to the MAAM museum (must-see) and the museum of the Cabildo de Salta. You have several options to eat, with prices from moderate to higher. The square is very nice with beautiful views, you can take several interesting photos of the Cabildo from the Plaza and the Cathedral. Lots of movement always, both in the early hours of the morning and at night.
