“Very nice church”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2012

The church is really nice, very big, and with really nice figures. I would suggest you to get a guide to see it so they explain you some interesting stuff about it

“Looking at the lit-up Cathedral on the plaza with a glass of wine and thou!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2012

Very beautiful spot, especially looking at the exterior over picada and a bottle of wine from the square when night falls and the lights flood the beautiful building with ambience.

“Picturesque”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2012

The atmosphere of the Cathedral of Salta and the plaza is better at night when it seems to come to life. We were fortunate to be there during Easter when the congregation accompanied some of the cathedral's religious statues in a procession around the plaza.

This is the second time we tried to visit the cathedral. Regretfully it is closed to the public between midday and 5.30pm.
