What secrets does northern Tucuman keep?

This circuit seems to be stopped in time, because it refers tourists to everyday customs of the beginning of the last century.


Leaving on the RN 9, and after traveling 50 kilometersnorth of the capital of Tucuman, we reach Choromoro, a village of 500 inhabitants. From there and along the RP 312, unique landscapes emerge. The towns of Choromoro, Chuscha, La Hoguera, Gonzalo and Potrero await visitors to enjoy their rivers and streams and their many activities, such as hiking, horseback riding and even photo safaris.

The García Salemi Archaeological Museum, which operates in the old Cabildo Indiano,is a historic building dating back to 1850. An important collection of pieces from our originalcultures is on display.
