The battle of Castañares was an 1821 battle of the Argentine War of Independence. The cabildo of Salta deposed the governor Martín Miguel de Güemes on May 24. He returned to the city on May 30. All the cavalry of the city switched sides to support Güemes, and the remainder forces dispersed. Thus, Güemes entered to the city unopposed.
