The objective of the present contribution is to present the results obtained from the planimetric layout and excavations made in Epifanio Burgos (SsalCac170), located approximately to 8 km to the northwest of Cachi, in North Calchaquí Valley, Salta Province. This site, is located on a slope on the right margin of the Quebrada de Las Arcas, presenting a series of particular characteristics. The location stands out by the coexistence of dispersed knolls throughout a series of circular structures surrounded by a perimetral wall towards the south, as well as by the presence of some rectangular structures, whose constructive characteristics differ substantially from the previous ones.These characteristics, associated to the remarkable variability of material found in surface, among them, ceramics fragments monochrome (gray, and black), similar to which characterizes the Formative sites of the area, allow to tentatively locate to Epifanio Burgos like a site pertaining to the final moments of the Formative period and beginnings of the Regional Developments in North Calchaquí Valley
