Iglesia San Francisco, Salta

(4.5/5 based on 1,500+ reviews on the web)
Terracotta tiles, ivory columns, and gold trimming combine to make the stunning facade of Iglesia San Francisco, Salta's most distinctive landmark. Admire the combination of European architecture and indigenous influence, which explains the church's bright, unusual exterior colors. Make sure you take a good look at the intricate frescoes adorning the church's walls and ceiling, as you can't take photos of the interior. Once you've finished admiring the church, take a stroll through the attached gardens, where you can take a few snaps. The church forms part of a functioning nunnery, which occasionally limits visiting hours. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Iglesia San Francisco and many more Salta attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Salta itinerary planner.
