SALTA

CAMPO QUIJANO

Campo Quijano is a small traditional town, with little over 5000 inhabitants, sitting in the Valle de Lerma Valley. It is known as the gateway to the Andes and is the access door to the Ruta Nacional Nº 51 National Route, bound to the Puna highlands.

The place came into being in the year 1921, when the construction of the railroad to Socopampa began. It is three kilometres away from the del Toro Ravine's river mouth, at 1520 metres above sea level.

Travellers arriving at this small town should not fear a lack of accommodations. If you cross the town in a westerly direction, for instance, you will find a camping area with a very good infrastructure.

One kilometre ahead, right after the asphalt road ends, travellers can take off to the left and arrive to a place called Finca Río Blanco through a steep road. It is a small village holding about ten houses and standing at only three kilometres from the town's plaza, a place with an idyllic landscape running through a very thick Ceibo tree lined avenue.

Standing in an opening, by a thicket with hydrangeas and grass, is a group of four summerhouses with architectural styles ranging from neo-colonial to contemporaneous, and a lovely neo-gothic church dating back to 1914. Finally, after a difficult fording of the Río Blanco riverbed stands the beautiful ranch bearing the name of the locality.

The Tren a las Nubes' (Cloud-Bound Train) railway runs through Campo Quijano. Among its main attractions, besides the camping area and the Río Blanco River, is the Dique Las Lomitas Dam.

HOW TO GET THERE
It is 30 kilometres west from the City of Salta, going down the Ruta Nacional Nº 51. You can also go down the Ruta Nacional Nº 68, up to Cerrillos and then taking the Ruta Provincial Nº 24 (road to Colón); or continuing up to Rosario de Lerma, and then taking the Ruta Nacional Nº 34. All these roads are asphalted and in excellent conditions.

In addition, travellers can arrive by train (the Ramal C-14 railway, carrying the Tren a las Nubes train, runs through 70% of the municipality's jurisdictional surface), which as the Ruta Nacional Nº 51, goes all the way up to Chile.
