Tafi del Valle and Quilmes Ruins Trip

After picking you up in San Miguel de Tucumán, we will head to the Jesuit ruins of San José de Lules, where see the cultural legacy of the Society of Jesus. Continuing along the famous Route 307, we will pass through the stunning Los Sosa gorge. In this spectacular wilderness, we will stop in front of the impressive Monument to the Indian where our professional guide will tell you all about why it was made and who it honors.

Our journey continues, following the shoreline of La Angostura reservoir, until we reach the captivating Los Menhires Archaeological Site in El Mollar. This set of more than 50 magnificent megalithic sculptures is still an enigma and you will hear some of the fascinating theories about their origin and meaning.

After we have finished exploring the ancient site in El Mollar, we will travel to Tafí del Valle where you will have your own time to try some of the delicious local Creole cuisine. After lunch, we meet back up again and head north towards the breathtaking Calchaquí Valley. In this beautiful area, we will visit one of the most extensive pre-Columbian settlements in Argentina: the ruins of Quilmes.

During our visit to the ancient site, you will learn all about who the Quilmes Indians were, about their main customs and traditions, and the legacy they left us. Once we have finished exploring the settlement, we will take you back to your hotel in San Miguel de Tucumán.
