San Isidro de Lules: nature and culture

The town of San Isidro de Lules, in Tucumán, is an ideal alternative for travellers who enjoy adventure and culture.

San Isidro de Lules

A destination full of options awaits us in the province of  Tucumán . San Isidro de Lules offers us unparalleled natural beauty along with a city full of mysteries and tradition. It is the ideal combination for  culture  and adventure lovers.

20 kilometers from the city of  San Miguel de Tucumán , this town responds to the requirements of eco-cultural tourism. The circuit starts with the Jesuit Ruins of San José de Lules, declared a National Historical Monument. There are reminiscences of indigenous ancestors and testimonies of evangelization. It was there that the cultivation of sugar cane was first introduced in the province of  Tucumán .

Another obligatory point is the visit to the Oratory, in honor of San Antonio de Padua. This is closely linked to the history and construction of the country, where General Belgrano found support for the battle of the Carreras Field during the  Revolution of   May and  Independence  .

Once inside the city, you will find the Founding Church of San Isidro de Lules. This was the first public building in the city, built in 1851. Declared Provincial Historical Monument, it is currently open to tourists and parishioners.

But nature also surprises in this locality. To the west we find the Quebrada de Lules, framed by the Sierras de San Javier and Yerba Huasi. This was a source of inspiration for Atahualpa Yupanqui, who immortalized it in songs that toured the world.
