Amazing workmanship,a must visit in Salta. Beautiful tiles and building. You can wander past and look in foyer or have full visit.
Situated on the corner of Caseros and Cordoba, it’s an imposing building. Currently it’s closed to the public as it’s under restoration, but still admire the building as you walk past. It’s covered in a veil with a picture of the building printed on it. There is a gift shop to the side (see my pictures)
Very nice church, vivid colours and high bell tower. Architecturally more interesting than the Cathedral. Was being restored at a cost of over 3million pesos, we toured the whole outside but could not go in. Still worth the look when in Salta! Hope this review was helpful!
Magnificent from the fantastic shade, brick red, of its walls to its high rise tower. There are guided tours every half hour, starting at 9:30 am. The cloisters are so peacefull
A lovely church inside and out, if only didn't close it 12-5 week days. Various different images inside and life size saints

visited august 2011. such a fantastical building on the outside. the inside is nice, too, but when compared to the main cathedral of salta, the interior is less impressive. worth a look from the outside for sure and the little gift store attached has fun chotskies for sale.
For first time visitors in Salta this landmark is definitely high on the list of things you *must* see. That said, the church would be very difficult to avoid, and it is a quick visit. Well worth it: it is stunning!
