Salta and JujuyThe Colors and Flavors of Culture
Two big words can describe the North of our country: Colors and Flavors. Declared World Cultural Heritage by UNESCO, Jujuy presents you the Hill of 7 Colors, named in that way due to the great amount of minerals that give cheerful colors to the whole postcard, with Purmamarca valley at its feet. From a colorful scenery to a complete pure white background: Salinas Grandes, an impressive extension of 82 square miles of salt lakes that reaches the horizon. Cafayate in Salta province is not left behind: reds and oranges are present in mountains, lands and even in their wines. Culture is not only reflected in the natural heritage, but also in the traditional cuisine of their people, where colors are also part of this recipe in the so many spices they use taken from the earth.
