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 the main church of Catamarca and certainly the most beautiful. Here is the picture several centuries-old times of the Virgin of the Valley where 2 times a year, at Easter and in the celebration of the Immaculate Conception come from several neighboring provinces to render honors to so beautiful lady. If you come to Catamarca can't stop coming

  • A historic building, with strong religious and cultural roots. Beautiful architecture and very well maintained. If you visit it don't miss learn also about the "camarín de la virgen" object of adoration and gratitude of thousands of faithful. There you can see closely the original image of the Virgin Mary carved in wood and a massive amount of figures of metal other than the human body in gratitude-shaped by the miracles of healing of the Virgin.

  • Our mother of the Valley, Virgin Morena is located here. All the 8 of December gather pilgrims from all over who come to ask for or give thanks to God and our Lady through her intercession. The shrine of the Virgin Mary is a very special and elegant space

  • It was a memorable experience of a mass concelebrated by the Bishops of the Northwest, and the priests of the whole area. For the first time our brunette Virgin were guarding the grenadiers on horseback (of course without the horses)
