Travel the Silver Route, Buenos Aires – Lima

Travel from Argentine along the “Silver Route” through colonial towns and surrealistic landscapes and discover more about one of the most important eras in the history of South America!
Buenos Aires tourThe important silver mine (Cerro Rico) in Potosi created not only the so called ‘silver trails’ towards the coast of Lima, but also a ‘slave route’ from Buenos Aires to Potosí. Along the trading routes for silver and supplies for Potosi emerged new towns and cities, including La Paz, Salta and Cordoba.
The silver from South America not only played an important role in the history of this continent, but was actually an important key factor during Spanish ruling in Europa.
The wealth in South America attracted businessmen, artists, ‘gold diggers’ and slaves from from Europe and remains of their presence are still very visible in the modern metropolis of Buenos Aires.
