Catedral Basílica de Salta

Catedral Basílica de Salta Review

The city's 1882 neoclassical cathedral fronts the central plaza, and is notable for the enormous frescoes portraying the four gospel writers on the portico around the altar and its impressive stained glass windows. Inside the entrance is the Panteón de las Glorias del Norte, enclosing the tombs of General Martín Miguel de Güemes and other heroes from the War of Independence. Wander to the back of the cathedral for a peek at the beautiful, jasmine-infused garden.
