In the northern end of Salta, as if it were giving its back to the province, isolated by mountain chains and protected by long, narrow and winding roads, like a gem set on the rock, rises Iruya, a mountain town with an elusive beauty.
Travelers who discover IRUYA are overwhelmed by its beauty and silence
During the 17th and 18th centuries, Iruya was a little parcel within the two million hectares owned by the marquis of Tojo.
Located 2713 meters above sea level, it now has the appearance of a fortified city. Men have placed rocks where nature failed to do so. The streets' paving constitutes a shell that protects them from rains.
