Virgen de los Tres Cerritos, Salta

4.6
#3 of 11 in Historic Sites in Salta
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.

    A small shrine located in one of the three hills of the town, is a very serene place where one breathes spirituality. To pray, thank and visit the devotees of the Virgin.

Where to stay in Salta
