Argentina, Salta Guide (B): Salta la Linda. A City in the North of Argentina

I have heard about Salta many times and it was definitely a place I wanted to go while living in South America. Located on the far western north of Argentina, relatively close to the border with Chile and Bolivia, a trip to Salta can bring many adventures.

I will write for you another post with more details of the trip itself, but today let’s focus on the city of Salta. The city was founded in 1582 by Hernando de Lerma of Tucumán. Today it is commonly called Salta la Linda (Salta the Pretty). In the original language of the Aymara indigenous people the name of the city comes from the word sagta, which translates as beautiful, thus the present name.
