Cafayate: Quilmes Ruins
The ruins of Quilmes belonged to the Calchaqui natives, who settled on the mountain range called Calchaqui, from where they got their name. On this tour you will enjoy a trip to explore the ruins and learn about their history.
Departing from Cafayate, a gravel road will take you to the foot of the hill named Alto del Rey where the impressive city lies. With luck, you will discover some traces of this ancient civilization such as arrow tips, stone or pottery axes.
The huge mountain itself is a solid stone fortress, and it was around here that the communities raised their animals and grew their crops. You’ll also be able to visit the highest point of the mountain, from where the locals defended themselves against the enemy (other tribes and Spanish conquerors).
