Trip Planner: South America / Argentina / Northern Argentina / Province of Salta / Salta / El Anfiteatro (The Amphitheatre)
Hear the difference at El Anfiteatro (The Amphitheatre), a large semi-enclosed rock formation renowned for its acoustics. Situated in Cafayate's La Quebrada valley, known for many impressive rock formations, the amphitheater is a large gap between the rocks with a completely flat floor and a rotund shape. Visit the grandiose natural formation and see the 20 m (65 ft) reddish stone walls that allow the sound to reverberate freely. Try out the acoustics of the place by yourself, or enjoy one of the live music performances that very often take place here. El Anfiteatro (The Amphitheatre) is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , international travel planner Edition.

This is one of the stops on the way to Cafayate. I loved it. There were musicians playing and the sound was great.

Amazing! Gorgeous! A must if you are traveling to northern Argentina. It is a geological structure where you are in the middle of a rock formation modified by the elements and besides that it’s just a few meters from the road, you have a parking lot and it’s free. Inside you can find some artisan selling things and you might find people playing some music taking advantage of the natural acoustic. 100% recommended
For being so close to the road, this is an amazing spot to stop the car -- GO check out it out. The natural occurrences of wind and water have made this spot what it is -- a "chiminea" or chimney. A term I discovered when visiting Talamapaya National Park. The local vendors line the pathway to the center and if you're lucky, there's a flutist playing a tune.
