A day like today, many years ago, a city was born that would become the central axis of the province of Jujuy. This is San Pedro, a town located within the San Francisco River Valley. This place is 15 km from the confluence of the Grande and Lavayén rivers, which then form the San Francisco River. And it is the head of the apartment of the same name. San Pedro de Jujuy is nicknamed “SPJ” by passenger transport and postal mail companies.
The city was founded on May 25, 1883, in the middle of the revolutionary event. However, before its foundation, the territory was active. A sugar mill worked on the spot for 13 years. Its founder was Governor Eugenio Tello. However, there are some controversies about the date of birth of the city. There are historians , such as Jobino Sierra Iglesias, who argue that the foundation would have taken place on July 27, 1885. Although the real celebration continues to take place every 25 May, in double commemoration. On the one hand, the May revolution is celebrated in pure locro and empanadas. And on the other, the birth of St. Peter.
Since this place was officially founded, it has not stopped growing and hosting large events. It even hosted a presidential visit in 2014 , due to its great sugar activity. But there are many attractions of this place , as over time it became one of the charming places that offer northern Argentina . Its mountainous atmosphere, its varied architecture, the tranquility of its streets and the warmth of its people make it one of the most visited in the region. Here are 4 attractions of San Pedro:
San Pedro de Jujuy stands out for its carnivals and corsicans. The Yungas Carnival is one of the most distinguished in the northwest of the country , with 11 different categories competing between artistic, sayas and tinkus. These holidays are held every year in the month of February. It is a multicolored celebration where numerous companies or organizations compete for the best dances, changing rooms and presentations. It is a multitudinous event, which becomes one of the most anticipated by the entire population. The carnivals of San Pedro are one of the largest in the province of Jujuy.
Another key attraction of the place is its careers. The city is known nationally for its competitions. Among them, his motorcycle races are one of the busiest. In this event , participants from all provinces and corners of the Argentine Republic gather. It is usually held from early until well into the afternoon, on long days that no one wants them to end. Around the races, other types of associated activities are developed: parties, meals and meetings.

In addition to motorcycle racing, motorsport competitions are also held. For this event, particular used cars modified and designed to win are presented. The events are divided into circuits and are promoted by municipal and provincial authorities.
This monument became an icon of the city and a key attraction of religious tourism, initially promoted by the Roman Catholic Church and by the municipal authorities . The popularity of the monument arises because in our country devotion to this saint is widespread. That is why the city decided to build a structure that honors this religious character. Historians state that this affinity for San Expedito probably came from Spanish colonization and was subsequently reinforced with the arrival of the Italian colony in the country , since the character is of Roman origin. Many parishioners consider him the saint of the “impossible causes” and ask for his intervention for problems of money, health or education.
It is another religious monument associated with the Roman Catholic Church. This grotto became a prominent tourist spot. It is located between Barbesini and Martinez streets, and honors San Silvestre. The honoree was a pope of European origin who in the fourth century was imprisoned to later be released and become leader of the church. In his honor, careers are being run throughout the Christian world . In San Pedro, for example, tradition is marked by the San Silvestre Marathon which is run annually with categories for adults and minors. These kinds of events are enjoyed and expected by entire families.
