    The Province

    Talking about Tucumán is talking about history. Tucumán is independence. It is geographically small but great in spirit. It is an obliged destination for those who want to dive into the roots of a rich country. It is green, it is peace. It is the Garden of the Republic, and there are too many reasons for this nickname. In this section, we offer all the necessary information deeply get to know this province and to fall in love of its hills, its squares, its typical food and its people.

    Despite the relatively small territory it occupies, the Province of Tucumán, both naturally and culturally, offers a great number of touristic resources that arise from its varied and beautiful landscapes, its excellent weather during Fall and Winter (the reason for it being the Garden of the Republic “El Jardín de la República”) and its culture, that comprises pre-Hispanic and Jesuitical inputs; though it arises specifically from the input provided during the Intellectual Peak period that started on 1880 and that mainly developed during the first half of the 20th Century. Such period is still reflected in some architecture exponents of the province.

    Tucumán has a great number of protected natural areas and forest areas and mountain woods (though reduced in size) that remain practically virgin. Among the sites of great touristic attraction we must name San Pedro de Colalao, San Javier Hills, Quilmes Ruins, Pucara de la Ciudacita, Raco, Simoca (especially attractive for its big fair), the lake-reserve Escaba, Cochuna, La Laguna del Tesoro, El Mollar, Mehnires Park, La Quebrada de los Sosa, Tafí del Valle, El Siambón, Villa Nougués, Yerba Buena, the snowy valley of Aconquija, Colalao del Valle, Amaicha del Valle, etc.

    Tucumán houses four universities that provide more than 120 courses of studies and, along with other centers of higher education; they form an important intellectual capital that is acknowledged throughout the world.
