Purmamarca is a tiny, picturesque village at the base of the gorge which shares the same name. The main square has a laid back and relaxed atmosphere with a collection of local shops and restaurants to explore on your holiday in Argentina. On the south side stands the pretty seventeenth century church, Iglesia Santa Rosa de Lima, and in the centre of the square there is a huge Algarrobo tree that is claimed to be thousands of years old.
The main attraction of Purmamarca is the famous Cerro de los Siete Colores which stands for hill of seven colours. Overlooking the village this dramatic rock face has seven reported colours ranging from pastel beiges and pinks to orangey ochres and dark purples. Whether you can see all of the seven colours it is indeed a unique attraction to the village.
