Quebrada de las Conchas
Quebrada de las Conchas Review
The first 50 km (30 mi) of the direct road to Salta (or the last stretch if you don't come via Cachi and Molinos), known as the Gorge of the Shells, encompasses such breathtaking scenery that the Quebrada is now rightfully its own attraction. Various rock formations have been eroded into wildly different shapes that have been nicknamed the Windows, the Castles, the Frog, the Friar—each name seems truly fanciful, that is until the road winds around the corner and you're actually confronted by the formation itself. The climax is the Amphitheater, sometimes used as a venue for proper orchestras thanks to its outstanding natural acoustics; wandering minstrels offer impromptu performances.
