Virgen de los Tres Cerritos, Salta

(4.5/5 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 a beautiful place where peace abounds. The climbs are well indicated. Everything is perfectly ordered. Beautiful view panorama from the Hill. If venis to jump is a site bound, since the Virgin is miraculous.

  • To enjoy a place of encounter with itself, where the peace and prayer are marked by the visit, it may make the descent a pleasure reviewing moments of extreme devotion

  • The road pedestrian is beautiful, medium difficult. The Chapel is very nice. Place of prayer, not of tourism, although somebody should be able to go. The restrictions I seem excessive, even for a place of prayer. I recommend the same experience.
