Jujuy province maps
 




Jujuy province is located in the extreme northwest of Argentina at the borders with Chile and Bolivia. The only neighboring Argentine province is Salta to the east and south.

Jujuy spreads over a vast archeological bed where rupestrian art, paintings and engravings on rocks are a testimony to human groups that inhabited the area 9000 years ago.

There are 3 main areas in Jujuy: the Altiplano, a 3,500 meters high plateau with peaks of 5,000 meters, covers most of the province. The Grande River of Jujuy cuts through the Quebrada de Humahuaca canyon, of heights between 1,000 and 3,500 meters. To the Southeast, the sierras descends to the Gran Chaco region.

Apart from the fantastic contrast of land colours and formations, tourists are attracted also by the strong aboriginal roots in the culture of Jujuy. Aymará and Quechua cultures coexist in the area, and ruins of the Incas are well conserved.



Tourists who come to Jujuy visit the area of the Quebrada de Humahuaca and its Cerro de los Siete Colores, Pucará de Tilcara, Salinas Grandes and many small towns. Other less frequent destinations include the Calilegua National Park in the Yungas jungle, La Quiaca, Laguna de Pozuelos, and Laguna Guayatayoc.

There's a pleasant atmosphere and a constant springlike climate. The Jujuy city streets are lined with orange trees, and whitewashed European-style buildings mingle with adobe architecture.
