Impressive architecture in a beautiful cultural center

An impressive building right in the middle of the city. The building holds various expositions and activities. Worth a visit and it's for free.

An impressive staircase and imposing rooms with free entry to the 2nd floor where music classes appear to be conducted in the former ballroom. Worth a quick look.

The museum is free to enter and is set in a fabulous building in the main square in Salta. The exhibitions change frequently, so we saw some impressive photography, a beautiful collection of nativities, and a video on the train to the clouds.

I had a disappointing experience at the Centro Cultural America -- I had expected a bit more. However, the current exhibition is only temporary and also free.
