To many visitors, it seems that time has stood still in the Humahuaca Canyon. Humahuaca itself is a town of adobe houses along narrow cobbled streets, lit by old-fashioned colonial style street lamps.
Even the people seem to live by ancient traditions. This valley has played an important role in most of the cultural developments of South American, from the first hunting settlements ten thousand years ago, to the Inca trade routes, to the colonization by the Spanish.
Its museums highlight the link between ancient and current, past and future, east and west, that makes this destination a tranquil visit to a past and a lifestyle that are all to forgotten in the rest of the world.
