    Iconic site representative of the Jujuy idiosyncrasies very linked to the Catholic religion. From there depart religious ceremonies such as the pilgrimage to the Virgin of Río Blanco. Inside, valuable work of American Baroque art, of patrimonial importance. There also the Museum of the Cathedral Church is with various works of religious art. The Government of Jujuy appreciated this building as linked to the identity of the juenos in commemoration of the bicentennial of the jura and the blessing of the national flag in the Church Catedaral a 25 may 1812

    It is spectacular. The Atrium gold, very well maintained, the walls, the altars. Everything shines. The pulpit, is a true work of art. If it is regarded from the square, not seems to keep inside so much magnificence. I believe that anyone visiting san Salvador de Jujuy must pass through the Cathedral.
