“Cactus Wood”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

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

“Beautiful church and main square!”
Reviewed January 10, 2012

Outside the hotel, it is just beautiful to take time for a stroll around the square, take photos and enjoy your time in Cachi. Inside, you feel like you're taking a trip back in time. Just beautiful.
