Church Tourist Spot
Discover Salta's historic and religious background with a visit to Nuestra Senora de la Merced, a Catholic church built in the early 20th century, dedicated primarily to Our Lady of Mercy, a subject of Christian art. Brought over from Europe in the early 17th century, a replica statue of the Virgin of Mercy resided within the original church, and now sits in the current structure. Head inside and pay special attention to the Battle of Salta cross, a wooden cross dedicated to the lives lost in the fight to gain independence.

  • Very nice Church, especially on the inside. Is located right in the town center, very "enclosed" among other buildings, which makes it difficult to take pictures of its full façade (in addition to the wiring inevitably!). An advisable walk who likes this kind of visits and is with time by the center of the city.

Where to stay in Salta

Salta's status as the tourist hub of northwestern Argentina means that a wide array of accommodations has sprung up throughout the city. The majority are concentrated around the city's grid-like center, surrounding Plaza 9 de Julio. For something more relaxed and closer to nature, go southeast and explore the area around Parque San Martin. You can opt for anything from a healthy range of budget accommodations, including hostels and small guesthouses, all the way to luxury hotels.
