Tilcara is a small town on the national highway to the northernmost part of the country. My favourite part of the trip! It has nice buildings, it has an archaeological site with a botanical garden (it’s a little bit of a walk), a fake Mesoamerican pyramid monument, and in the background you see the UNESCO-certified mountains too!!! It’s 2 hours from Jujuy but only 30 minutes from Humahuaca.
This is where the UNESCO certified mountains are at, and the town is also pretty. It’s only around 30 minutes from Tilcara, so I did both on the same day from Jujuy!
