OUTSTANDING SAN JUAN

The Province of San Juanboasts incredible scenes that lure tourists. One outstanding destination is Ischigualasto Provincial Park, popularly known as the Valley of the Moon. It features a highly unusual geography in which the relief formations adopt shapes never seen before, ranging from all grey to ocher hues.

Cradle of good well-known wines, countless wineries have been settled throughout San Juan. Together with Mendoza, they are part of the region known as Cuyo and in charge of providing this beverage to all points in Argentina.

The Sunshine National Festival is celebrated in San Juan in February. Tribute is paid to everyone who participates in the winegrowing process, pioneers and winemakers. It all ends with the famous Grape Harvest and a popular festival joined by all denizens of San Juan.

Both the capital city and most small urban centers enjoy a similar physiognomy in which architectural features combine the colonial and modern styles. The streets and avenues are ample and there are several public spaces where the vegetation and the tress are the main protagonists.

The infinite landscapes of San Juan and its exquisite geographical nooks attract not only tourists but also the inhabitants of the province, who every long weekend choose to visit a different destination within this territory in search of quietness and rest. As a result, in the last few years the accommodation offer in the areas close to the reservoirs and natural water bodies in this fine-looking region has increased significantly.
