The Temple serves as the meeting place for many group activities. As soon as guests enter this large, welcoming space, they feel a sacred energy that invites relaxation and calm. The space accommodates countless activities, including all you need to lead a yoga class. Or perhaps you’d like to walk the meditation labyrinth made of canvas and always available for use.
Temazcal, a traditional, guided Sweat Lodge Ceremony
Alla Arriba promotes all activities that support the growth and development of consciousness. That’s why we have an on-site Temazcal, a type of sweat lodge which originated with pre-Hispanic indigenous peoples in Mesoamerica. The Temazcal uses the same steam and heat techniques used by native people for both health benefits and inner healing. Learn more about our Temazcal Ceremonies.
The dining room is a meeting point for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Choose from a variety of options: local cuisine, vegetarian and more. Here you can also opt to take cooking classes, or visit our garden, or watch as dinner is prepared on our magnificent grills. We are respectful of individual tastes and food allergies and will work to accommodate your needs.
Classes for Every Interest
We can arrange painting classes taught by local artists, cooking classes that showcase our native foods and cooking techniques, and, yes, even tango lessons at your request.
Time and Space for Relaxation
Our guests have the opportunity to do everything, or nothing at all. Guests will have ample opportunity to enjoy unscheduled time, our outdoor pool, and pleasant, peaceful spaces to read, unwind, reflect, play and meditate. Want a more active experience? There are beautiful hiking trails, paragliding, visits to the famous Hotel Eden, and so much more.
Visit Historic and Legendary Sites
Alla Arriba is located in the Punilla Valley, famous for Los Comechingones, people indigenous to the Argentine provinces that were thoroughly displaced or exterminated by the Spanish conquistadores by the end of the 17th Century, yet who have still left their cultural mark. In addition, Uritorco, the highest peak of the Sierra chain in the northwest of the province of Córdoba is recognized as a famous center of energy. Since 1986 Uritorco has been mentioned in media reports of UFO sightings, extraterrestrial visits, and visions of “parallel dimensions”.
Discovery and Adventure
The options for touring and adventure are nearly limitless. Just steps from Alla Arriba is the charming village of La Falda whose shops, restaurants and cafes are proud to play host to our visitors. Ready to wander further? Whether our guests want a cultural excursion to visit historic sites, or prefer to enjoy an endless variety of outdoor adventures, we will assist in the planning of experiences that fit every budget and taste.
