The cabildo today performs the same function it did in colonial times, namely, as an administrative office for the area. The white limestone is easy on the eye. It faces the Sargento Gomez Plaza. There is a tower that opens up at noon. A shepherd comes out to bless you with moving parts. It was all very impressive.

So I wrote my comment about the priest in the church review. The church is charming and a local lady share the beautiful story of the town and church for free (you can give a donation if you want) best description I got and she was passionate about that!

According to the Humahuaca bus station map, the tourist information office is opposite the church. We find the church easily enough, but it is totally upstaged by the building on the opposite side of the plaza, the Cabildo de Humahuaca, which at first glance doesn't appear to be the tourist office. It’s a curious mixture of styles, with arched windows, wrought iron gratings, balcony ironwork and a clock tower, the upper stone walls painted white. It wouldn't be out of place in the middle of Barcelona. But then I spot a guy standing at a portable table in the shade, a hand painted sign reads: Asistencia Turistica, Sevicious, Services.

He is Julio, about fifty years old and has thick mass of greying black hair tied into a ponytail. He tells me he was a shepherd from the age of seven, but when his daughter was born he wanted better for her. He used to stand with her at the roadside and wave at the tourist busses passing by. He was interested to hear all the different languages. He moved his family to Humahuaca, worked at various jobs, learnt to speak English, and eventually became the tourist information office in Humahuaca.
