Ancasti, a paradise for rest or action

Ancasti is more than a majestic and paradisiacal landscape: it offers a variety of activities to live the catamarque proposal at your own pace.


 Catamarca  has northern  DNA  in each of its corners, and the department of  Ancasti  is no exception. Today it is a catamarque jewel, however, at first it was called Sierra de Santiago and belonged to  Santiago del Estero .

Ancasti combines beautiful landscapes, a country style with lots of archaeological history, as well as rivers that accompany its inhabitants and visitors.  La Cueva de la Candelaria   and Tunita  are an interesting historical-archaeological proposal. They are natural  rock art museums: the life and customs of ancient hunters and gatherers have been engraved there. Every meter of nature is a resource from which the  water culture has been fed  and equipped.

 Villa Anquincilla  is a welcoming community with dirt roads and a river. The place has sites enabled to carry out camps and a municipal inn. Believers and interested may visit the  Chapel Our Lady of the Rosary .

 Pizca Dike  is an artificial lake that is located 1000 meters above sea level, above the river Las Beatas. If you visit Ancasti, you can not forget your fishing rod, since  sport fishing  is a very popular activity on site. Pejerreyes and perch are the most sought after fish.

Tekking and fishing

  Fishing   for many represents an activity of peace and concentration, but Ancasti has more. The   trekking  has a spectacular atmosphere that mixes forests, rivers and hills. Locals argue that appreciating the sunrise from its high trails is unforgettable and unique.

The hospitality of the inhabitants of Ancasti is full; the mountain families waiting for a visit will always be prepared with homemade bread, mattes with native herbs and, of course, the  grilled chivito. It is a place where the most intense connection is going to live with nature and with mountain ranos. I came to  Catamarca , I came to Ancasti.
