Brief History

The city of Salta, and province by the same namesake, was founded in 1582 by Spanish conquistadors to serve as an outpost between Buenos Aires and Lima, Peru.

In the early 1800's, Salta thrived as a commercial and military center-point.  After the Argentina War of Independence, however, the town found itself bankrupt and politically in shambles.  Salta's economy remained dormant for much of the 19th Century, but trade, commerce and agriculture was sharply revived with an influx of immigrants to the area in the early 20th Century.

Today, Salta's stable economy is based largely on agriculture and tourism.
