Cuesta del Obispo, Salta Province


Where the Lerma Valley (home to the city of Salta) meets the Calchaqui Valley (home to many of the region's wineries), the Cuesta del Obispo is marked by this adorable chapel of St. Raphael, which often sits above the clouds (as was the case when we visited, you can just see them peeking out on the right). Our fabulous guide, Edgar, explained that it is tradition to back out of the chapel without turning around, so as not to turn our backs on the archangel.
