Worth a visit, well lit at night. Nice atmosphere in the evening, few nice bistros. Visiting the cathedral is a must.

Make sure you take the time to visit the Cathedral - visually the exterior is classical of its time - however it is the interior that is simply stunning.

Well shaded with many park benches with ubiquitous Salta street dogs (friendly and well fed), pigeons and surrounded by impressive buildings. Four of the key attractions of Salta surround this plaza. It is also surrounded by many restaurants, coffee shops and hotels.

The main square so lots of people - relaxing, talking, and strolling. Gives one a good feel of a Colonial city.

Architectually beautiful but unfortunatelly does not feel safe as full of homeless and kids begging. The restaurants are not the best available. wort going a bit further afield.

Enjoyable walk around and through this lovely Plaza several times. On one side as we have found in majority of South America countries one finds a key feature -- a Cathedral. Popular throughout the day with local folk.

This is the main square in Salta - it includes the Cathedral, El Cabildo, shops, restaurants, the Museum of High Altitude, the American cultural centre and so on. Go upstairs in MacDonalds for an interesting view of one side of the square - and enjoy a mocha frappuccino while you are there!

Beautiful central square in the heart of Salta, place of meeting, rest, and starting point of any activity for tourists and visitors. Surrounded by restaurants, and beginning of pedestrian shopping streets, this square is very nice and quiet, full of pigeons, where you can relax and have a cup of coffe o glass of beer..

Make your way here to the heart of town and take a while to sit in the shade and watch the world go by. From here it is not far to find a coffee, beer or meal or step into the adjacent Cathedral. ATM points are close by and an abundance of taxis and shops
