Church
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.

  • When I saw felt the need to... it was something that touched me since I felt that I was called to pray... and immediately started to pray by two people that made me much harm, I felt much peace.
