“Great views - Muy buenas vistas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2014

We visited the Cerro San Bernardo on our last trip to Salta, I recommend hiking by food if you like to exercise. You go up on the trail from the Monument to Guemes.
Subimos caminando al cerro San Bernardo es muy buen ejercicio, hay que estar en buen estado. se sube desde el monumento a Guemes.

“Great views, good exercise!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2014

After spening the previous 4 days in and out of buses, we decided to walk up the steps from Paseo Guemes (next to the Museum of Anthropology) to the top of the hill. Though not supremely challenging, it does need a bit of exertion! I think there are 1070 steps :-). It was worth it for the view though! Clear view of the city and surrounding hills and country side. And if walking up the steps is not enough for you, there is a free outdoor gym at the top! We skipped this and treated ourselves to the gondola back down to San Martin Park.

“Great view of the city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2014

Absolutely beautiful park on Cerro San Bernardo - one of the best city parks we visited in Argentina. We actually visited the park twice, the first time on the City Tour, the second time we took the gondola up to the park for a second, more leisurely visit. The water falls are fabulous, the place is immaculate. The views of the city were great. Could just imagine being up there in the evening, watching the lights of the city come on. Well worth both visits.

“A nice ride on the aerial tramway”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2014

Visitors to Salta should take the round-trip ride on the aerial tramway to the top of Cerro San Bernardo. Adults pay 70 pesos for the round-trip ticket. The ascent (or descent) takes about 10 minutes. Once on top of the cerro, there is a large park with panoramic views of the city and surrounding area. Many people were enjoying lunch at the restaurant in the park. There are two other ways to get to the top -- climbing a stairway consisting of 1000 steps, or by car or bus on the road that goes up the hill. The Swiss-designed aerial tramway is much more exciting!

“Swiss Cable Cars in Salta?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014

interesting viewing point, where on a clear day one can see all of Salta and beyond. Give a better feel of the size of the area.
