“interesting church”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

You find in there a pregnant virgin with the Spirit in her right hand. It's the first time I see a statue like that.

“cool from the outside”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

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.

“Don't miss this”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

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!

“needs some TLC”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

A lovely old church - nowhere near as majestic as the Cathedral in Salta. Needs renovation and some tender loving care!

“Can't miss the facade!”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

We just love the bright colors of the facade --brick-red and bright turmeric-yellow! Be sure to check the hours, since it is closed to visitors over the noon hours. Take a peek (& try for a visit, if possible) of the very peaceful cloister with its beautiful garden. It's just one block from the main square.
