Nestled in the Lerma Valley lies the elegant city of Salta with its Spanish-colonial architecture and rich folklore. Salta is probably the most Spanish city in Argentina by architectural appearance, with a strong resemblance to cities of Andalusia in Southern Spain. The local culture however is a blend of Spanish and Gaucho traditions, which give the city a distinct identity to that of the more European cities of the south.
