SALTA

TARTAGAL

In the northeastern part of the Province of Salta, there is a world were natural magic and culture combines to offer travellers unique experiences of relaxation, learning and searching within themselves.

Tartagal, along with Orán and Embarcación, constitute the most important urban sub-system of the Salta's northeast. It is an important centre in the relations with Bolivia, which is connected by the road to Yacuiba bound to Santa Cruz de la Sierra.

It was founded in July of 1924 and formally declared a City the 12th of September of 1949. Its name comes from the abundant tártago (Castor oil plant) in the area. It has a big commercial and industrial movement, where the forest exploitations and oil fields stand out.

Tartagal an its surrounding areas have a great natural and historical potential for tourism. Regarding its events, we can talk about consecrated acts summoning multitudes from all over the province, the country, and even neighbouring countries.

The numerous indigenous missions around it spark curiosity. Craftsmanship made by natives out of Palo Santo and balsa wood, can be purchased; as well as textiles and pottery. During the carnival celebrations curiously arranged masquerades take part.

Artistic groups from different places gather together to celebrate the Palo Santo Festival in July. Going through an asphalted road travellers arrive at the Río Bermejo River, where they can practice sport fishing. Those interested can be advised at the Club de Caza y Pesca Tartagal.
