  • Monday, March 5-not to be missed in the city of La Rioja, is the large and spectacular Cathedral dedicated to Saint Nicholas of Bari. After the earthquake of 1894, which destroyed the old church, commissioned the Italian architect Arnaldi to design and build a new one. The new church was finished in 1910, is eclectic neo-Byzantine style façade, like many argentine churches, modern Gothic bell towers while the dome is Baroque. The altar of the patron where stands the statue with the black face of Saint Nicholas, Bishop of Myra, Saint Turk of the third century. This statue in walnut, comes from Peru and is thought to be of the school of Cuzco of 1600. Beautiful stained glass Windows inside and rich but not redundant extreme baroque altars. A flaw, in my opinion, is the painting of the walls, restored recently, which seems the upholstery of your accommodation. Well worth a visit.

  • I love the Catedral
  • Exquisite architecture, regardless of the religion which they profess, is almost compelled to visit it if you pass by La Rioja not only by its high architectural value but also for its great artistic heritage, has beautiful frescoes and figures. These days they are restoring the frescoes in the altar and there is much scaffolding in the same. Yet not dull the beauty of the rest and is also good to know that the Riojan village is however to keep it pretty.
