Virgen de los Tres Cerritos, Salta
(4.6/5 based on 1,200+ reviews on the web)
Take part in one of South America's most powerful spiritual experiences with a visit to Virgen de los Tres Cerritos, renowned locally for its likeness of the Virgin Mary. Though erected in 2001, the church's story started back in the early 1990s, when an apparition of the Virgin was allegedly spotted on the hill. Since then, the hill has served a holy site for Catholics around the world. Join the Saturday pilgrimage to visit the chapel with thousands of devout locals, or stop by during the week for a much quieter, more personal experience.

  • From the start the hike is a very nice experience, then the meeting with Libyan Maria and the grutita with the Virgin. A good ride for believers

  • Incredible organization of this visit to the Virgin in the middle of the Hill. There are two roads, the Pilgrim by the middle of the Hill. 40 minutes of walking. Or by free bus that will take you up to a few meters near the sanctuary. Very mobilizing, not is it can eat, smoking or using mobile phones, but okay because many people who attend. To upload by the way of the Pilgrim are hundreds of rosaries hanging from trees left by the people who are going to thank or ask. If you have faith, it is very moving.
