CAFAYATE in Photos Salta, Argentina  |  Cafayate, Salta, Argentina  |  (North of Argentina, Salta) The wine region of Salta. Photos will talk for themself… I can only say that this destination is the perfect combination of relaxation + gourmet + wineries + luxury. I want to thank Viñas de Cafayate Hotel for hosting me.

Patios de Cafayate Hotel by Sheraton. A classic landmark of Cafayate and together with Viñas de Cafayate Hotel the two main options in town.

The main square is one of the main neuralgic points of this charming town. Home to the cathedral and one of my favorite restaurants, Terruño, where you can enjoy the best views of the locals while sipping and tasting the best wine exponents of the only and traditional Argentinean grape – the Torrontes.

Many of the most impressive sights in the Valley of the Río las Conchas (Quebrada de Cafayate) are along the paved, 183-kilometres-long National Route 68 that goes from Salta to Cafayate. National Route 40 goes for 165 kilometres form Cafayate to Cachi del Valle, another of the most visited points in the area. Other points of interest from Cafayate include Molinos, Tolombón and San Isidro ranch. The town of Cafayate is an attraction by itself, with its laid-back rhythm, colonial style, and wine cellars open to the public.

The Cafayates were a tribe of the Diaguita-Calchaquí group, which, together with the related Tolombón, inhabited the Valles Calchaquíes prior to the arrival of the Spanish Conquistadores. Their language was known as Cacán. Like other Diaguita tribes, they had recently fallen under the influence of the Incas, after a prolonged resistance. They later mounted a fierce resistance to the Spaniards. CM @ Carlos Melia Recommends
