We took the ride for the views of Salta, but really loved the water features and gardens at the top. It was beautiful and very refreshing after a week of travelling through desert.

Excellent place to get a feel for the country side and views of the city. Great spot to cool off in the summer!

Inexpensive and quick way to get to the lookout point over Salta. They don't take any credit or debit card payment unless it's the local Visa Card and not the ones we had from the UK. Best to have cash. Amazing views from the cable...More

Not really that unique, you do get a great view of the city from the top. The windows of the cable car were scratched and impaired photography. The ride is expensive. Don't think I would do it again if I knew then what I know...More
