Northern provinces feature traces of pre-Colombian cultures, mingled with ruins of native’s villages, as well as forts and constructions back to the time of the Conquest and Colonization. Time seems to stand still in the high plateau of the Puna, a land full of mountain ranges, steep mountain paths, and gorges. Villages have been built in the small valleys. The region offers landscapes full of contrast for tourists to enjoy, from the high peaks to the plains, the salt pans, where Latin American culture took root.
