Quijano Station: Salta's new tourist terminal

Campo Quijano Station has been renovated and will be presented as an urban and interurban bus terminal and a tourist proposal.


An imposing bus tourist terminal will be inaugurated in the middle  of Portal de los Andes .  This is the site of the former Train Station, in the immediate vicinity of the Campo Quijanohospital.  “The Terminal was designed to offer better comforts to users and also to boost tourism,” said former mayor  Manuel Cornejo .

The platforms will be used by transport services to San Antonio de los Cobres, Salta-Quijano-Salta, Quijano-Rosario de Lerma and Quijano-Cerrillos, among others. Dogwood highlighted an important fact: Saeta  circuits  will not be changed. That is, the tourist terminal will not affect the route of cars, these will remain as they are currently.

The former communal chief held a meeting with SAETA's general manager  Claudio Juri and the owners of the company Ale Hnos. Next to them they evaluated an operating diagram.

The project aims to strengthen tourism and generate a cultural hub that is part of the pedestrian route of the village. The tourist terminal at the same time puts in value to a local icon, with various complementary activities to passenger transport. The idea is to set up a Paseo Ferroviario, which starts at the Martín Fierro square, where an old steam locomotive is exposed, to the brand new station.

The story

The urbanization of the town arose at the beginning of the 20th century along with the construction of the railway to  Socompa . A whole story that goes on rails. Quijano crossed until recently the famous formation of the   Train to the Clouds  . It allowed the traveler to enjoy the stunning beauty of the landscape, the heights, the ravines and the hills. In the town they trust that, in the future, the old route will return. This would make Quijano the base of the fantastic journey that Salta is known all over the world.

 Quijano  will have a very picturesque terminal that preserves the traditional architectural strokes, a wonderful work. It will become an important source of income as it will be a development space for local enterprises. The tourist terminal will open registration for those holidays interested in having a place at the station. The essential requirement will be to have domicile in the town with a seniority of not less than five years, said Cornejo.
