Ruinas de quilmes amaicha del valle tucuman paseos360
Argentina

A escasos kilómetros de la RN 40, este valle mantiene en reserva los valiosos restos de la brava cultura calchaquí. Al pie del cerro Alto del Rey se emplaza la venerable ciudadela de los indios Quilmes (1978 metros). Tras superar el río Santa María, proveniente desde la provincia vecina de Catamarca, el camino se encuentra con la renombrada RN 40, la cual es un desafío para quienes anhelan cruzar los variado paisajes y accidentes geográficos que la Argentina puede ofrecer. El paisaje de las Sierras de Quilmes al oeste y el cordón Calchaquí al este, confieren una identidad propia e inconfundible al amplio valle. La pasividad atrapa y tienta a los aventureros a ascender sus escaparadas cumbres.Una ruta enripiada en dirección a los cerros del oeste, lo llevará tras 5 Km., al pie del cerro Alto del Rey, donde se encuentra la venerable ciudadela de los indios quilmes, a casi 2000 m.s.n.m. Es uno de los asentamientos prehipánicos más importantes de la Argentina, habitado desde el 800 d. c. bastión ante el avance español que lucharon durante 130 años, hasta ser doblegados en 1666. Los últimos sobrevivientes fueron deportados a pie al sur de Buenos Aires.

More About Argentina

Argentina didn't get to be the second-largest country in South America overnight. Archaeological remains found here date to some 9,000 years BC, left by the ancient Mesoamerican civilization. Early inhabitants were nomads and hunters who followed prehistoric horses and llamas. By the year 1480 AD the Incan empire had stretched to reach northern Argentina and the stage was set for contact.The Europeans came in 1516 with Spanish explorer Juan Diaz do Solis, who claimed the area for Spain and tried to export a river of silver back to Europe. Wealth grew along with the cattle industry and after Napoleon conquered Spain, Argentina declared its independence and set up their own government. That was 1810 AD.Argentina stayed neutral in WWI and for most of WWII, declaring war on the Axis powers only in 1945. Following the war, the country entered into a long chain of military dictatorships with only brief forays into constitutional government. The current president is Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, who's been in office since December 2007.Argentina is known for many things but the top of the list belongs to only two -- steak and the tango. Cattle graze on the abundant grasslands and produce some of the best beef in the world.  The climate is well-suited for vineyards as well, and Argentina's wines make a fine companion to their steak.As for the tango, it has recently exploded to become a world famous dance with hotspots in every major city on the planet. It started in Buenos Aires in the middle of the nineteenth century, as the city was filling up with a mixture of European immigrants and porteños, people who were born in the port city. They melded their cultures of rhythm and harmony and came up with the tango, which has been described as the ultimate evolution of partnered dancing. And it's a great way to burn off your steak stupor. Food coma begone!Text by Steve Smith.
