    Location

    Muse of zambas and vidalas (folklore music and dances), Tucumán is Argentina’s smallest province and it is located to the Northeast of the country, bordering with the provinces of Salta (North), Santiago del Estero (East and South), and Catamarca (West and South).

     

    Its capital is the City of San Miguel de Tucumán, crib of Argentina’s independence and icon of the sugar industry.

     

    It is located in the Southern hemisphere of the American Continent, Latitude: 26° 50' South – Longitude: 65° 12' West. Tucumán has a surface of 22.524 square kilometers and 1.448.000 inhabitants.

     

    Green and dense from every angle, and with some of the most paradisiacal landscapes of the country, Tucumán is divided into geographical areas worth being explored: to the East, the flat lands that are part of the Chaco region, the “Pampas of Tucumán”. To the West, three mountain ranges: the Calchaquíes mountain tops that belong to the Western Mountain Range, the Aconquija Chain that is part of the Pampeanas mountains, and the union between these two chains in the Tafí Valley.

     

    In the Northwestern end of Tucumán, you will find a third mountain range: the mountains of El Cajón or Quilmes, which limit the Calchaquí Valleys; to the Northeast, the Subandean mountains represented by the Burrayacú mountains.
