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

4.7
#1 of 36 in Things to do in Province of Catamarca
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 visiting any city or almost all of the cities we have the towering cathedrals. In this case with its imposing architecture and stained glass is a central place in the city for connoisseurs... without a guide who us of more data and gives sense to visit one appreciates what he sees nothing more than that.
