  • San Juan

    Life in this provincial capital moves at its own pace, and the locals are both proud of and humble about their little town. No slouch on the wine production front, San Juan’s wineries are refreshingly low-key, and the province’s other attractions are all within easy reach of the capital. Most come here en route to Parque Provincial Ischigualasto.

    In 1944 a massive earthquake destroyed the city center. In summer, especially on Sunday, all of San Juan heads to the nearby shores of Dique Ullum for relief from the sun.
