The train to the clouds

by puppis

This is to inform to anyone interested in this tour, that it is said that the train will start running again during next October.

Why did it stop running?

Re: The train to the clouds

by puppis

The train had to stop because during 3 times of the same season, the train machine had to be fixed while in the middle of the tour, in places where nobody could go back in any way to Salta. People on board had to wait for long hours until combis came to take the passengers back to the city. As I said, it took place 3 times, so the Salta Tourism Office broke the relation with the company who run the train.

Hope they contract with a better company! I've always wanted to ride on that train. Maybe in the future. The photos look so cool. Bummer for those who were on it when it broke down though.

Travel Tips for Salta

Convento San Bernardo, just the outside

by vtveen

The San Bernardo Convent is the oldest religious building in Salta. In the late 16th century a chapel dedicated to San Bernardo was erected on the same site. In the late 18th century rooms and galleries were built housing one of the first hospitals of Argentina during the country's independence war in the early 1800’s: Hospital of St. Andrew. Since the middle of the 19th century it is a Carmelite Monastery and still used by the Carmelite nuns.
The convent and church were declared a National Historic Monument in 1941.

After our visit to the San Francisco Church we walked further along Caseros and after a couple of blocks we arrived at Convento San Bernardo, situated at a cobble stoned little square. It is a more or less nondescript one storey building with white adobe walls. It doesn’t look very inviting, with just a few windows and doors.

One of these doors - the entrance - is the main ‘attraction’ of the convent. This stunning carved door - made of carob tree wood by local Indians - is older than the convent itself, and was donated by a family whose daughter entered the convent to become a nun. The year of its completion - 1762 - can be seen on the right top corner of the door.
On the left hand side of the building is a church with a simple façade and a small tower.

It is not possible to visit the convent as it is still used by Carmelite nuns. During the day these nuns sell pastries through a revolving door to avoid contact with the outside world. Have to admit that we missed it due to our own ignorance and/or siesta-time.
During the (early) mass it is possible to take a look inside the chapel.
