The Andes are the cradle of the pre-Incan civilizations and of the expansion of the Spanish conquistadores . The north-west of Argentina gathers the archaeological remains and traces of these two historical periods in some of the most fascinating natural valleys of Argentina. In the province of Jujuy, it is possible to cover a stretch of the Cordillera of the Andes with one of the highest railways in the world: the “Train of the Clouds”. From the train we admire spectacular landscapes and breathtaking heights, some reaching 4000 meters in height.
