Virgen de los Tres Cerritos, Salta

(4.6/5 based on 1,300+ 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.

  • It is not a tourist visit, he is to live a unique experience, especially for those who have faith. There feels the presence, and the thousands and thousands of people who go on a pilgrimage every week are a sign that what is experienced is magical. Go early, at 8 opens the path that silently and praying reach the sanctuary after walking 20 minutes. We stayed with my spouse until it ended, about 6 and returned full of spirituality. You have to experience it, difficult to describe it with words.

  • Worth it! The place is a huge peace of many experiences! Unexplained! Be in cerrro early at 7:30, at 12 climbs María Libya. With luck and a good location, type 14:30 in the afternoon we went. Recommended but with children is a little complicated to keep silence x 5 hours, not you can eat or picnicking. Very good organization of the place. It is a shrine "Remember"
