Catedral Nuestra Senora del Rosario, Cafayate

4.3
#9 of 19 in Historic Sites in Province of Salta
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.

  • Fantastic Cathedral, with numerous and very ancient religious images of different virgins. We can see the slender Cathedral, which is located opposite the main square, was designed by the architect Pedro Coll Catalan, between 1890 and 1895. The Prelature is located on his right watching her face. Inside has five naves, where the plant is slightly wider than the rest; being one of only three religious temples that possesses so many ships built in its interior. The temple preserves an image of our Lady of the Rosary, which is shown seated, so the Cafayatenos have dubbed it affectionately and respectfully "The seating". On the outside are two imposing towers side and attractive three doors that communicate with the atrium. I have attached a photo, did you useful?
