Catedral Basilica de Nuestra Senora del Valle, San Fernando del Valle de Catamarca
(4.7/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
Admire the distinctive, salmon-pink architecture of Catedral Basilica de Nuestra Senora del Valle, boasting twin spires and a columned facade. Completed in 1695 and dedicated to the Virgin of the Valley, the cathedral continues to hold a significant place in Argentina's religious history as the site of a popular pilgrimage every December. Step into the cathedral's surprisingly airy interior and appreciate the detailed frescoes and stained glass lining the walls and ceilings. Look up at half-dome behind the altar, which resembles a blue sky streaked with whisps of white clouds.

  • The Chair itself is beautiful, but the sanctuary of the Virgen del Valle (behind the main altar) me paralysed with excitement. I cannot find another description.

  • Without a doubt is one of the most beautiful cathedrals in the country. I've met several and until the moment I'll stick with this. It has a fantastic architecture and its surroundings are very beautiful, such as Plaza 25 de Mayo, it is also one of the most beautiful that I met. Recommended visit for all those who have the capital city of Catamarca as destination.
