Church
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.

  • This church was her insides with the very beautiful Cactus works in Cachi, specifically. The wooden ceiling, the Bible stand and also the confessional from the wood of the giant cacti.

  • Visit Cachi, especially if you choose to go from Cafayate Quebrada de las Flechas (Route 40) via is a magnica experience. Gravel road but nothing complicated and in good condition. The required return is by the Quebrada de las Conchas. In both cases consider taking more than half a day since it is a must to stop all the time to see scenery.

  • 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 »

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