Throughout South America, there are some beautiful cities, yet they don’t get the acclaim they deserve. If you are planning a trip to South America, you may want to stay out of the cities that are so tourist-focused and instead try one of the other cities that are underrated yet just as beautiful. Many of these cities have stayed hidden from the places to visit simply because they are not as popular as some of the other cities. Some of these cities can be a little hard to get to as there are no airports directly into them. If you want to rent a car or take a bus, however, they are worth seeing.
12. Salta, Argentina
An area of Argentina that often gets overlooked is the northwest and the city of Salta. Located in the foothills of the Andes mountain range, this city offers visitors breathtaking landscapes, charming architecture, and an incredible climate. There are many places to visit surrounding the area including the Salinas Grandes salt flats and the famous Tren a las Nubes, which is a railway that departs from Salta and winds through the surrounding valleys.
