About Tilcara

San Francisco de Tilcara (usually referred to as Tilcara) is a small city in the foothills of the Andes (2500m above sea level) in the province of Jujuy. It's in the far north of Argentina, just two and a half hours drive from the Bolivian border.

Traces of human habitation in the area date back more than 10,000 years, making it one of the oldest inhabited settlements of Argentina. The biggest attraction in Tilcara is the nearby Pucará de Tilcara, the partially reconstructed ruins of a pre-Inca fortress".
