I had not heard of this site before the visit. Located above but near the Sargento Gomez Plaza, the first impression has a high wow factor. Same is bolstered by hardly expecting a monument on such a [must use it] monumental scale here. It commemorates those who fought for the independence of the country. It is a good hike but to do done slowly in the very hot weather. Argentinians are justly proud of their heroes of the independence era. Humahuaca should be proud of this monument.

And part of the tour. If you don't want to do the stairs go to the top and them make your walk down, if you have a car there is a parking on the top.

It's a nice small monument to visit, bear in mind you have to take some stairs and at ~3000m above sea level you might get tired fairly quickly.

The imposing sculpture set high above the center of the town of Humahuaca is a work by Ernesto Soto Avendaño. It was built to pay homage to the Northern Argentinian Army that fought a total of 14 battles in Humahuaca during National Independence War.

The Monument made up of 70 tons of bronze represents the image of native chasqui Pedro Socompa that transmits the news of freedom( even though some people from the region say that the image of the protagonist belongs to Diego Viltipoco, an Omaguaca Indian Chief who helped Belgrano in the Independence Fight).

You will climb the lateral stairs and, at the top, enjoy a panoramic view of Humahuaca. Fifty meters to its left, Santa Bárbara Tower is situated. It used to be part of a Jesuit Chapel which has been pulled down.

We walked up the steps to this monument and took a few photos. It’s probably most meaningful for Argentinians who understand the full story behind it. Nice scenery with cactus up top.

This monument is huge and towers over the town. It is not very interesting in itself but is worth a visit if only to see the sheer size of it. The views from the top are also spectacular.

The monument is larger than life and tells a compelling story of the land and people, battles, victories and defeats. It is well worth the walk up - views are spectacular. We happened to be visiting during a holiday and lots of visitors were gathering in the town and on the monument. Definitely worth a stop if you are in town.

This monument stands out towering over the village and is perhaps a bit over the top. Nonetheless good views can be had from around the base and the cactus add to the spectacle.
