Explore the Amphitheatre (el Anfiteatro)

Guachipas, Argentina


Added by Andreas Brokalakis

Discover a natural amphitheater carved from red stone

El Anfiteatro (the amphitheater) is a natural amphitheater carved from red stone. This wonder of nature gets its name from its tall walls (20 meters high) shaped in a form similar to an amphitheater. As a result the acoustics of the place (especially if you position yourself near the center) are excellent and you can either try yourself to fill it with sounds or let be carried out by the music that is often played by visitors or musicians.

You can reach Anfiteatro by driving on Route 68 either from Salta or Cafayate (142km from Salta / 46km from Cafayate). The Anfiteatro is approached by car, you just need to exit the road and drive for a few meters to the entrance. From there you just walk into the site.

My only suggestion is to be careful during summer days as it can get pretty warm (up to 37C), so be properly prepared and carry enough water with you.
