Very beautiful church and interesting to look around. The altar is particularly beautiful. There was an organ recital taking place when we were there, which enhanced our experience.

Take a few minutes to stroll inside during an evening walk in the plaza - you won't be disappointed.

This Cathedral becomes a breathtaking phenemonon when it is illuminated at night. Although the modern glass-panelled edifice of the Macro Bank reflects a significant portion of the Cathedral thereby giving it added nuance, it is regretable that it was even approved for construction. Architecturally, it vies with the grandeur of the Cathedral and by comparison, a complete antithesis.

The Cathedral in Salta is considered one of the most beautiful temples in Argentina. It keeps the Human remains of some of the outstanding characters of the History of Argentina. The Altar is one of the most beautiful, all covered in gold. The Lord and Virgin of Miracle are the Saint Patrons of the province since They saved Salta from... More

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
