Salta Tour - Cafayate back to Salta

In the morning we went to visit 2 wineries .. a modern one and the oldest one in the Cafayate valley which has a neat museum and some interesting wines, export brands around 100 pesos and the national products at about 50 pesos... The problem was that there was no production as the harvest will take place in February and we need to go back in March..

We then took the nicest road of all called the Quebrada de las Conchas ... and saw some magnificient sceneries..

Back in Salta we went to see a pilgrimage little chapel on top of the mountain. It is said that the lady the pilgrims come to see has been visited by Mary and Jesus. She applies her hand on all pilgrims and there have been miracles... so we thought I should give it a go... Now the problem was that the lady was on holidays so I have to be back in March!!! But we visited the place and it was kind of amazing! And the views were amazing!
