This is an archeological point which is a bastion of prehispanic cultures. Really nice spot. It's renewed the ruins and it's really nice to visit. 500 pesos, Monday not open!

Now you pay for the PULCARA TILCARA, and you gain entrance in botanical garden, the ruin is in a good shape, worth the visit!

Entrance now is 500 pp for foreigners. The botanical garden is nice but not spectacular. The walk to the monument / ruins on top is nice! Closed on mondays

Report Check-In

Entrance now 350 which includes museum in town (which only had 2 rooms open on our visit). Great views from site though site itself not very atmospheric. Garden worth a wander for stone which sounds like a bell when you hit it!

Closed due to strike. Waited all weekend to have free Monday entry but what can you do. South America is unpredictable

Report Check-In

Entrance now 300 pesos for foreigners. Couldn’t justify the visit for that price so can’t speak to the attraction. Looks like they have a “zoo” and garden as well. Don’t follow maps.me to get there, follow the sign in town.

Yes Monday free. But they asked for a donation. normally not worth the entrance fee for foreigners. They have to pay more than the Argentionas. That's DISCRIMINATION
