  • This Cathedral is located opposite the main square of the city of Salta. It is very well preserved, both walls and their images. It is very moving to see the Saltenos to honor them.

  • This Cathedral is already imposing from the outside, when all this is entered to the same it grows in a disproportionate manner, its architecture is really impressive!

  • A lovely cathedral, but they've replaced the bell's with a Nokia ring tone. Strange!
