Nice cathedral right in the centre of the city. Probably one of the very few things worth visiting in Salta, not sure why the city is called "la linda"!

A truly authentic Spanish colonial church! The main altar is outstanding! You will see saint statues dressed in clothes, which is tupical Spanish. All the stayues and little chapels are beautiful. Pretty garden, too.

Went with a school trip of teenage boys from the UK... decided to spend our last day exploring Salta itself only to find the Cathedral was CLOSED!!! Find that a bit odd as it IS one of the main attractions in the city. My fault for assuming it would be open but annoying nonetheless!

The cathedral is a gorgeous both outside and inside. It is worth a visit -even if you are not a catholic person- since it has a beautiful architecture and paintings

As numerous, too. I was surprised at how many and how nice, for a small city. Very enjoyable. Of course, if you feel you've seen your fill of churches, I could not argue with you. Go find something else.

Wednesday late morning and 00's high school students fall in for mass. The singing should have been awesome. ...The music should have been awesome. ....it wasn't. But the Eucharist is understood in any language and the fully packed cathedral with its dazzling floor and beauty. ..awesome enough to be unforgettable!

Definitely a must-see in Salta. It is absolutely gorgeous. While I wasn´t able to attend mass here, I was there for the recitation of several Hail Marys. Like I said, must-see. Ornate and very detailed. I loved it.
