Church Tourist Spot
Step off the main square to visit Cachi Iglesia, a National Historic Landmark and Catholic church still in use. View the tall, white walls from the outside and the three bells in the tower, and then head inside to appreciate the simple decorations. Cactus wood supports the roof of the 18th-century building, making it unique from other Catholic churches in the country, and the altar features an image of Jesus Christ with an angel on each side. The people of the town still use the church as a place of worship and often stop by to pray. Make Cachi Iglesia a part of your Cachi vacation plans using our Cachi trip itinerary maker.

  • The confessional box made of cactus wood was is an interesting use of this material. The lack of much decoration probably reflects the small size of Cachi and the wealth of the town.  more »
  • Larger and with a higher ceiling than most (but still the cactus wood), this is a pleasant church. The stations of the cross are in local tapistry style, not great art, but an interesting naïve style.  more »
  • Like the rest of Cachi, the Iglesias offers a look back into the past, a reminder of a slower more peaceful pace. Look closely the church confessional and ceiling is made of cactus.  more »

  • Simple, long and very narrow church with cardones ceilings. Linda to visit to see how they are almost all churches in the North.

Where to stay in Cachi

Across the small urban area of Cachi, you'll find well-appointed accommodations set in atmospheric colonial-era buildings. Mainly offering little but the room itself, these small hotels and guesthouses have more than enough charm and welcoming spirit to make you forget about the lack of amenities. Campgrounds just outside of the main village present a particularly enticing option for visitors wanting to get straight out into the landscape and spend a night under the stars.
