Acheral is a settlement in Tucumán Province in the Monteros Department in northern Argentina in proximity to the Pre-Cordilleras of the Andes. It is accessed from the provincial capital city by Ruta Nacional 38 to the south.
It is a rural community with 7,000 inhabitants.
On 10 October 1975, a battle between ERP guerrillas and the Argentine Army took place in Arroyo San Gabriel, 2 km north of Acheral. Helicopters strafed the guerrilla's hideout and used their air-to-surface missiles to set it on fire, resulting in the deaths of one soldier and 13 guerrillas. One army helicopter was damaged during the incident.
