Purmamarca
Argentina

Purmamarca is a town in the Tumbaya Department of the Jujuy Province in Argentina.

It also server as a starting point for treks such as the Paseo de los Colorados and Purmamarca River, and tours to Salinas Grandes, the Huachichocana archaeological site and the Laguna de Guayatayoc with its pink flamencos and wild goose.
