Legado Mitico Salta is every bit as luxurious as its sister property in Buenos Aires, with its elegant grey townhouse façade and chic air similar to that of a prestigious member’s club.
Once home to one of Salta's most important aristocratic families, all of the eleven rooms are themed around a famous local figure, owing both to the hotels and local areas inherent sense of culture and history. The architect owners ensure the rooms are nothing short of amazing, and are adorned with Persian rugs and impeccably restored antique furniture. Even the lowest category is incredibly spacious - they all even boast some sort of outdoor space, be it in the form of a balcony, patio or terrace, or both in the case of La Capitana.
The hotel bar has a wide selection of Argentine wines, and a small menu of local specialities is available, perfect for a light lunch. For something more substantial, head out onto the streets of Salta to sample some local cuisine. The street adjacent to the hotel has a number of good restaurants and peñas (folk clubs), or try your luck in the markets with the huge portions served on plastic plates and soak up the lively atmosphere.
Have a massage in-room or settle down in the library with one of their covetable coffee table books. Out of the hotel, Salta has an abundance of things to see and do. From the MAAM (Museum of High Altitude Archaeology) and the imposing pink cathedral, to shopping followed by a visit to a local folk club.
