Overview

The Diaguita Indians called Taf del Valle the town of the magnificent entrance and they were right: Taf del Valle is one of the most heavenly destinations in Tucumn. Once people get to this summertime villa, the valleys welcome their visitors with their green and brown colors that contrast with the blue sky, with a dike over which the sun reflects and with unpaved roads that are a testimony of years of history. A must do when visiting San Miguel de Tucumn.

Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Pass By: San miguel de tucuman

Stop At: Reserva Los Sosa

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Menhires Provincial Park, Tafi del Valle, Province of Tucuman, Northern Argentina

Higher, the entrance to the Valley of Tafi is simply shocking. Surrounding La Angostura Dam we will arrive at The Mollar to visit The Menhires. It only takes a walk along the Archaeological Reserve Los Menhires and a look at the 50 types of rocks dating from more than 2000 years (from the beginning of the Christian era)- that rise up to 3 meters high- to be amazed by the archaeological legacy of the primitive races.
The word menhir has a Celtic origin and it means long stone. The shapes represented in the mehnirs are surprising: sometimes they show human faces and other times animal faces, mainly felines. Others are geometric and there also are combinations of different types.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Tafi Del Valle

Later we will visit the picturesque city of Tafi del Valle. Inside Taf del Valle, the Jesuit architecture is preserved, the oldest section was built by the Jesuits in the first half of the eighteenth century. In the valley we will have free time for lunch (optional) an then we continue through the Route 307 up to the viewpoint from which the best views of the valley are obtained, in a pronounced zigzag until Abra del Infiernillo , at 3,042 meters high.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Stop At: Quilmes Ruins (Ruinas de Quilmes), Amaicha del Valle, Province of Tucuman, Northern Argentina

In Amaicha del Valle we will visit the square and its surroundings. After connecting with the 40 National Route, the Sacred City of Quilmes breaks left. The visitor will be able to tour the complex with the company of a guide and will be amazed to know every detail of the last bastion on aboriginal resistance against the Spanish advance, that finished in 1667, when 1700 survivors were sent, walking, to the proximity of Buenos Aires (currently the city of Quilmes), where only 400 of them made it there. The Museo del Sitio (currently out of service for restoration) showcases pieces obtained in the excavations and invites you to dive into an unprecedented legacy.
