This church is one of the finest examples of colonial architecture in the Calchaquí Valley. It is a small Spanish church that was built in the mid 1700s. Cactus wood was used in the vaulted ceiling and even the confessional. There are three bells on the upper facade of the church. It was declared a National Historic Monument in 1945.

A very simple church, quite beautiful and on the main plaza - it makes for great photo opportunities. On the inside though is the real treat - the roof is supported by beams of cactus wood, making this place unusual and unique of all the places of worship I've visited anywhere in the world. The locals around the square are quite friendly, and the food in Cachi good as well. I recommend a daytrip to Cachi if you are spending about a week in Salta

Here is a good example of a small rural church. It is on the plaza and is in good condition. The interior is plain and uses the local cactus 'wood'.

Just a quick in & out, and you will have seen this little church, which has a classic Latin American design.

Cachi is a small, Spanish colonial town in northwestern salta province. It has a lot of life, and while th epopulation is small, lots of visitors pass through, on their way to Salta or Cafayate. The church is a charming reminder of colonial times: a single nave, the bellfry incorporated into the =facade, and elaborately decorated main altar and side altars.

The confessional box made of cactus wood was is an interesting use of this material. The lack of much decoration probably reflects the small size of Cachi and the wealth of the town.

Larger and with a higher ceiling than most (but still the cactus wood), this is a pleasant church. The stations of the cross are in local tapistry style, not great art, but an interesting naïve style.

Like the rest of Cachi, the Iglesias offers a look back into the past, a reminder of a slower more peaceful pace. Look closely the church confessional and ceiling is made of cactus.

Spent a while admiring the church admits a raging heat and swirling wind. Overall it's worth going into and spending a few minutes enjoying the quiet. Respect the parishioners in the church - the town is very religious and they were there praying.
