Photographer's Note

The Cabildo of the city of Salta is the most complete & preserved in Argentina, an architectural jewel of the colonial period.

The access is open toward the square, is the only one of two plants, each with arcades. Originally there were seventeen arches on the ground floor and nineteen on high. The mismatch between the two series of arches, and the location of the tower outside the central axis, produce the characteristic asymmetry of this building, and is part of its charm.
The bell tower, with Tuscan pilasters is covered with glazed tiles, culminating in a single vane.

It houses an Historian Museum and was declared National Historic Landmark in 1937
