CITY DESCRIPTION: SAN
SALVADOR DE Jujuy, sometimes called JUJUY CITY, is the provincial capital
of JUJUY and is about 1,120 miles Northwest of Buenos Aires. It is an older
city founded around 1593 and today is inhabited by 190,000. Like most provincial
capitals it is the region's commercial center with good banking, communication
and transportation facilities. When you mention the city's name it conjures
up images of the Tango and Gauchos because it is a traditional Argentine
city. The surrounding countryside has an unusual quality, sometimes the
hills appear red, then blue, then other colors, makes it a colorful place!
It has a good selection of hotels, restaurants (from Argentine to Chinese)
and the obligatory provincial casino. Really not a "tourist" destination
there is enough to see and do to keep you occupied between business meetings.
