Catedral Nuestra Senora del Rosario, Cafayate

Admire the simpler interior and exterior of Catedral Nuestra Senora del Rosario, whose more pared-down style contrasts other Catholic churches of northern Argentina. Architect Pedro Coll designed the 1895 cathedral with two bell towers and three arched doorways. Inside, pay special attention to the altar's statue of Cafayate's Patron Saint, Our Lady of the Rosary, depicted sitting down. Note that the church abuts the city's main square, so you can combine your visit with a stroll through the plaza.

  • Not very impressive at all. Very bland and superficial architecture, nothing of note. If you want to see a beautiful or elegant church, go to Salta. If you want to see a lovely and quaint one, go to one of the surrounding villages. It's striking yellow colour is extraordinary, but largely for the wrong reasons: it only highlights the lack of lustre or details.
  • The cathedral our Lady of the Rosary, is the mother church of the Prelature of Cafayate, ecclesial jurisdiction suffragan of the Archdiocese of Salta.
