  • A beautiful church of neo-Gothic style, which stands enters the others by being the only one that has these characteristics in the city. Sober architecture, its interior is worth a visit.

  • The building was nothing exceptional for it reminds our classic European Churches. The only interest is based on the presentation of this wooden cross that hangs in the nave and has its historical interest.

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.
