Estancia Las Carreras
- Brimming with history, Las Carreras is one of the oldest estancias in the Calchaqui Valley
Built in 1718 by the Jesuits with local materials like adobe, straw, reed and alder, all the ranch's rooms face central courtyards as was typical of the colonial architecture of the time. Nestled in a landscape of awe-inspiring beauty, the retreat sits at the foot of majestic hills that rise and fall between 2,600 and 4,500 metres. Each of the ten bedrooms has a historical, monastic look but with comfortable furnishings. The décor is simple period furniture combined with locally woven fabrics.
Discover the culture of the area horse riding, visiting local artisans and eating Argentina's famous Manchego cheese.
