La Merced del Alto Hotel | Cachi, Salta, Argentina | La Merced del Alto Hotel is located in Cachi, a charming small town approximately 3 hours away from the city of Salta in Argentina. I was there a year ago and fell completely in love with this area, the fantastic boutique Hotel and over all the culture, the people, the food and of course the wine. It is truly a shame that at that time I did not have the camera I have now, to capture more in depth the soul and colors of the area, the textures and its people.
Located at the base of El Nevado de Cachi slope, La Merced del Alto stands out in the Valles Calchaquies surrounded by rivers, springs of water and slopes. Only a few minutes away walking from the town of Cachi which consist in a main square from where spreads the most 15 blocks on each direction. 159 km from the City of Salta and 157 from worldwide renown vineyards of Cafayate.

Spa with multiple treatments to better enjoy and appreciate the unparalleled beauty of this area, complimented by this unique boutique hotel.
