Without doubts the village of Purmamarca is the most remarkable in this area, with its chapel under the avocation of Santa Rosa de Lima with its melancholic aspect of loneliness, is another appropriate setting of this landscape, perhaps due to the native style of building with a muddy substance extracted from the marshy lakes, which appears to be splashed on the adobe mud-walls.
