IN THE MIDDLE OF A SEMI-DESERT LANDSCAPE ARISES THIS MINING TOWN

A mining town founded in 1548, full of history and culture, that has been designated as a Magical Town. In the past, its Minerva and Orito mines extracted zinc, copper, silver, and gold.

Important silver deposits were discovered here, attracting wealth and a greater number of settlers. Throughout its streets, facades lined with pink quarry stone showcasing its viceregal heritage can be found, as well as colorful gardens.

Among its constructions, the Larrañaga House stands out, which is attributed to having the most beautiful facade in the town and is enveloped in legend. It is said that if you decipher the coat of arms found at the entrance, you will find three treasures.

One of its most important festivals is the Ogarrito Festival, which takes place at the end of March or beginning of April. During this event, the locals wear clothing from the 19th century to celebrate the date when the tunnel was inaugurated during the turn of the century.
