  • The night tour is transmitted to one at the time of colonization. Be all lit with candles recreating ghostly images of the cloisters allows to perceive the spirit of him then. Material displayed is invaluable since it shows up as to how the hosts were manufactured using traditional methods to the wonders of the decoration of the Church whose dome appears to be lined internally by figure in relief, and they are actually paintings. The artistic recreation of the Oratory of san Francisco allows us to appreciate the humble spirit of the Holy and their permanent fight pro know sinner. Travel through the passageways of the Church allows you to feel the anguish of refugees.

  • Recently made enhancement work is very valuable. It would be good to have guides in other languages, or the option of audio guides

  • On this occasion, I wanted to mention the night guided visit to the San Francisco Museum. Normally the first Friday of each month at 20:30, but I did it during the July holidays that normally added days and times. The visit, including the Guide, costs $50 (about $3) and takes about 40 minutes. The home is spectacular. While he joins all the people to make the visit, one hopes in a small auditorium where projected an audiovisual about the temple and then there is a brief description by a guide. Then people is invited to move to the main courtyard, where you will find the solar clock, which is completely dark and only lit by candlelight, which gives it an environment immunity from the ordinary to the visit. Despite being in the heart of the city, the darkness is total, because of the height of the walls and only the lights of the dome and Bell Tower of the Church are, on one side of the courtyard are a few monks, praying in front of a large wooden cross, also lit only with candles. Finished their prayers, they boost the cross and retire to their rooms, since the Church has a convent that is permanently inhabited. I think that at this point are 6 friars that live there. After this guide invites you to go to the rooms. First visit the Music Hall to then climb to the top floor, where the discovery room is traversed America and later the Hall of the Foundation of Salta. This last can be a facsimile of the Act of Foundation of the city of Salta, the original of which is in the archives of the convent. Also there is a facsimile of a letter that the Gral. Saint Martin le dirijiera to Pueyrredón, which was found in these files, only a few years ago. Then iterates through the room of the Chaco missions, whose walls are completely covered with a giant poster of the region, where it showcases the work of the Franciscan Missionaries in the area and crafts of indigenous peoples that inhabit it are exposed. What follows is the most appealing part of the visit. Then walk along a long, narrow corridor whose walls have to see the wall stones and original bricks of the Church. This sector of the Museum was opened to the public recently since it was closed since the end of the 19TH century when the last restoration of the Church was made. After the catwalk, which hardly allows the passage of a person, will visit a room with antique objects used in the convent, such as printers to screw and appliances for cooking and cutting hosts. Room Fray Luis Giorgi will finally arrive. It was who designed and implemented around 1870 the complete renovation inside the temple, adding its facade, and towards 1880 designed and I did build its bell tower of 4 floors, the tallest Church in South America with 54 meters. This room was their workshop and retains the walls unplastered of stone and bricks, its vaulted brick ceiling and original terracotta tile floors. plaster molds, sculptures of Heads of Saints and decorated friezes used Giorgi in the restoration of the temple. Really it is worth making this visit and I strongly recommend it because it is not to be missed!
