Discover the amazing landscapes of Tafí del Valle and visit the fascinating archaeological site of the Quilmes Indians on this trip from San Miguel de Tucuman.
Tafi del Valle and Quilmes Ruins Trip
After picking you up from your hotel in San Miguel de Tucumán at 7:30 pm, we'll head to the Jesuit ruins of San José de Lules, where we'll see the cultural legacy of the Society of Jesus. Continuing along the famous Route 307, we'll pass by the stunning Quebrada de Sosa gorge. In this spectacular wilderness, we'll 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'll hear some of the fascinating theories about their origin and meaning.
After we've finished exploring the ancient site in El Mollar, we'll travel to Tafí del Valle where you'll have some free time to explore and get some lunch. After lunch, we meet back up again and head north towards the breathtaking Calchaquí Valley and visit the Museo Jesuítico La Banda.
In this beautiful area, we'll visit one of the most extensive pre-Columbian settlements in Argentina: the Quilmes Ruins. During our visit to the ancient site, you'll learn all about who the Quilmes Indians were, about their main customs and traditions, and the legacy they left us.
We'll head back to San Miguel de Tucumán at around 4:30 pm, arriving by around 8 pm.
