Catedral Basilica de Nuestra Senora del Valle, San Fernando del Valle de Catamarca

#Church, #Landmark, #Must See
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.

  • It is obligatory to visit the Cathedral and the Museum of the Virgin. It is a work that proudly to the Catamarca

  • It's an impresssionnant building, which sits at the top of the central square of Catamarca. The façade is wide, overlooking the Park. In the evening, lighting her highlights particularly, it's a nice building. We have visited inside quickly because William was a mass in progress, and it was inappropriate to move.

  • Really beautiful temple. Ancient and mysterious. We liked but much. In the heart of Catamarca, but for 15 meters maximum.
