Step off the plane and back in time in colonial Salta. This hotel, a recycled 19th-century mansion, has strategic location in the city’s historic quarter, only a few blocks from the stunningly colonial Plaza de Armas, the most beautiful in Argentina. The owner of Legado Mítico in Buenos Aires is salteño by birth so on this home turf, the hotel channels remarkable historic and cultural figures from the province of Salta.
Handsomely decorated with touches of leather couches, Andean textiles, alpaca, plush velvet, and hard wood floors, check into one of the spacious themed rooms like El Caudillo, named after Salta’s military hero during the Independence war, Martin Miguel de Güemes.
During the cold months, enjoy a book plucked from the collection in the wood-furnished library near the open hearth fireplace, or take your read outside to the charming vine covered patio during the warm months. Warm, inviting, and homey.
