  • Located in the Centre of the city, opposite the plaza; It is a must-see, spirituality, art and history.

  • It is huge, very well cared, beautiful inside and out. The Virgin who is in the main stand is admirable. Interesting to visit.

  • It is a cathedral, which was rebuilt in the 19 th century on the ruins of the previous one destroyed by an earthquake. She is very beautiful with large paintings and very richly adorned but as there was a mass, we couldn't take pictures. Outside there is a statue of Jean-Paul II, who visited this place.

  • So colorful and beautiful inside. They are 3 churches like this near the square. All are beautiful. Free to go inside and maybe you can say a prayer if you want.
  • Beautiful colors very nice churches. Walk around and see them all
  • The heart of Salta. We witnessed a religious festival and the atmosphere was spectacular. And what a beautiful church, elaborate decor inside, full of life.
  • Beautiful old church with some impressive figures inside. Outside people were selling cocoa leaves which was a weird contrast. Well worth a visit
  • Ok
