“Centuries of Salta's history meet within a square.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2012

Beautiful buildings and cozy caffees surround the square, there is the High mountain museum, the cathedral, the cabildo and other important buildings altogether around the square. The quality of the food is quite good and the people everywhere is very kind and friendly.

“The heart of Salta”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 24, 2012

You can find everything here. Restaurants, art, music, tango in la Glorieta in the park. I go there sometimes with my daughter to feed the pigeons. There's almost always someone selling corn to feed them. There's often free music or something else going on at the plaza, and it's a good central place to meet before going elsewhere.

“Best in Region”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2012

The old architecture of Salta is charming and European, and nowhere is this more evident than in the main plaza - nueve de julio. There are many other nice and tranquil parks within the city, but this is the best one. The view down one of the sidestreets, old buildings, moss hanging from the electric cables, a red church in the distance, it really is just a nice place to be. There are pricier but tasty restaurants lining the plaza, as well as pedestrian streets full with shopping opportunities very close by. This is in the heart of the city, a very nice and picturesque place to be.

“A lovely town square in the most charming town in N Argentina”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

I fell in love with Salta because of the architecture and this main square. While possibly not spectacular, it is extremely charming and I see why Arfgentinians love Salta.

“One of the finest examples of a city plaza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012 via mobile

The plaza is surrounded by lovely facades dating back through Salta's history. The only downside is the glass monstrosity of a bank next to the Cathedral. On a sunny day it is delightful to sit at a cafe or in the park watching Saltenos and tourists go about their business. The Cathedral is the main draw card and a good refreshment place is Monaco
