The north and the west of the territory of the county is part of the Puna, it is it is a continuation of the Puna of Atacama, located to the west in Chile and of the Bolivian highland located to the north. It is an expression of the extensive solid precámbrico of Brasilia. This solid one surrounded of high mountains, with heights stockings of 3800m, it possesses two predominant relief forms: plateaus and mountains.

Santa Victoria's mountains, in the frontier with the county of it Jumps and of the Aguilar they mark the oriental end of this extension. In her they stand out diverse reliefs like the mountains of Cochinoca or of Incahuasi and lower regions, they are numerous internal basins without extension drainage and varied heights. In the bottom of those basins they are salares and saline as Salting of Cauchari or the lagoons of Guayatayoc or Pozuelos. To the west they get up the Snowy of San Pedro and the hills Tint, Black, Zapaleri and Vilama; all they overcome the height 5000 meters. The mountainous cords contain numerous valleys and gulches that have facilitated the establishment of the populations. The valleys are basins of tectonic sinking stuffed by recent silts and they constituted the establishment to be able to cultivate them. As long as the breeding of sheep and goats are characteristic of the gulches, these they are deep and narrow lengthened furrows located mountainous linkages between two. A river travels its deeper part and it was in fact the intense and continuous erosion of the waters those that worked the gulch along the time. They are the natural access roads of the Puna. One of the most famous is the gulch of Humahuaca that is born to 3.500 m of height and it descends up to 1200 meters toward the south.
The rivers

It possesses a system hidrográfico singular, denominated basin oceanic jujeña, due to the combination of geographical accidents that you/they determine that the provincial waters finish ending in the Atlantic. The rains take place in the picks of the high mountains, it is for it that the rivers are born for on the 5.000 meters high. For the gulches, diverse rivers descend, one of the main ones is the Big one, this it advances for the gulch of Humahuaca and receives the Xibi Xibi or Boy in the proximities of the capital city. The waters of the river San Pedro and Lavayén, they converge in the Big river that feeds to another river jujeño: the San Francisco, this in turn picks up the flow of numerous tributary. After crossing the mountains subandinas (Calilegua, Santa Bárbara, of the Sentry and of the Fat Corn) the river San Francisco ends in the Red river.

The hydrography jujeña is quite closed, many rivers they are born and they extinguish in the Puna, causing humidity to the salares or feeding lagoons located in her (Pozuelos, Vilama or Guayatayoc).
