High in the foothills of the Andes, in northwest Argentina, is one of the most charming small towns in Salta province. Mighty mountains, including the perpetually snow-covered Nevada de Cachi, which rises 20,000 feet into the air, are visible from its pretty plaza. Streets are lined with adobe buildings whose clean lines and colonial touches give the town a picturesque and distinctive feel - its peaceful
and tranquil - the perfect place to while away days between Andes’ adventures. The impressive cardon cactus that grows everywhere might give the land the illusion of being arid, but visitors here will find that fine wine and pimento are also grown on the surrounding slopes. Cachi holidays are all things little-town-wanderings and wine tasting. Add in some fresh mountain air, a visit to the striking colonial Iglesia de Cachi, with its cactus wood roof and lecterns, and the fascinating archaeological museum next door and you have yourselves a delightful place to be.
