Government House in San Miguel
The bicentennial is this year so unfortunately many of the sights were closed to prepare for the celebrations.
In the centre of the city is the original government house. It's a very unassuming building considering its significance and I was assured that it was much more impressive Inside - however it was closed due to the bicentennial.
This is how the market looked before:
This is how it looks now:
Which is ok, until you take a step back:
It is a grand pity that this beautiful building has been ruined.
However, San Miguel de Tucuman has many other more beautiful buildings such as its many churches,
San Miguel Cathedral
An amphitheatre (which was once a swimming pool),
Government House at night
The entrance of the market
Items for sale
Pigs - both live and butchered
Pastel de Novia
In general the food in Tucuman was very good - the epanadas in the North are superior to those in Buenos Aires and the champion of epanadas can be found in Tucuman.
If you visit be sure to seek out the old lady with the basket of empanadas across from Independence house in San Miguel - you'll not regret trying these champion delicacies.
