San Pedro de Jujuy, Argentina - Polarsteps

San Pedro de Jujuy, Argentina, population: about 60,000. Yet another basic agricultural town with nothing of interest to tourists. And, nothing here that says to me, "Chip, you need to make this your next hometown." San Pedro de Jujuy was founded in May 1883. At the time of its founding the town already had a working sugar mill for some 13 years. It grew slowly and in 1913 was declared a municipality and had two flour mills. The railroad helped the city to grow a bit more. There is not much available in regard to the history of San Pedro. The biggest part of the economy of San Pedro is farming and ranching. As for the town, there is nothing but worn-out buildings, sidewalks that are crumbling, very few city parks, the two plazas, and many shuttered businesses even around the plazas. So, my impressions: San Pedro de Jujuy is an agricultural town. There is nothing particularly interesting or pretty here, nothing to attract tourists, and nothing that makes me want to put this town on my list of potential new hometowns. This town is tired and in general disrepair
