One of the most beautiful tourist destinations in the north of Argentina.
Its capital is the historic city of San Miguel de Tucumán, where you can walk through its colonial streets and visit the Casa Histórica – Museo Nacional de la Independencia where Argentina’s Independence was signed in 1816, emancipating Argentina from Spanish rule.
The Plaza Independencia is the bustling centre of the city, home to a neoclassical cathedral and the large modernist Government House. The Casa Padilla Museum, the former home of a prominent local family, houses 19th-century art and furniture.
The province offers five circuits: Historic City, Calchaquíes Valleys, Yungas, Choromoro Valley and South. All these areas combine a diversity of landscapes as well as history and culture, allowing visitors to choose from options ranging from adventure tourism to engaging with the richness of its art, represented by its internationally renowned musicians, sculptors, painters, actors and craftsmen.
