Situated in the historic centre of Salta, a few blocks away from museum and handcrafts shopping areas. Nice architecture, try to attend mass if you can.

When in Salta visit the main central square where this church is located. Nice to see the old buildings, take some pictures and relax in the square. It gets pretty busy in the evening times even on week-days. Have some good food and explore the local attractions.

This is really worth a visit and is the highlight of the square. There is a charming buzz and feel to this square and there are many locals here at the weekend. Avoid the cafes/eateries around the square, there are far nicer eateries away from the Cathedral. We spent 2 nights in Salta and walked around the square many times... More

Beautiful Church in amazing condition. In the main town Plaza. Only downside is a bell rings every 15 minutes. After the 2nd time, you will be tired of hearing it.

Don't miss the photo op if it's night and misty or with light rain. A beautiful view! Sadly, it's right next to a modern and cheap glass building.

Cathedral is beautiful inside and out. Be respectful of the worshippers. There are at least five services every day. After the mass ended we were able to walk around and look at the main alter and all of the side chapels. Quite impressive. Right on the main square.

Do go inside it is well worth the visit, incredibly decorated baroque style, one of the most beautiful churches I have seen outside of Europe.
