The Northwest Sights

Catedral de Jujuy

  • Religious Building/Site/Shrine

Updated 08/13/2014

Fodor's Review

The cathedral dates from 1765 and was the first building constructed in the city; however, it has been augmented and remodeled so many times that it's now a hodgepodge of architectural styles. The interior contains an ornately carved, gold-plated pulpit, said to be the finest in South America. A close look reveals an intricate population of carved figures, biblical and otherwise. It was inspired by the Cusqueña school of art from Cuzco, Peru, as were the building's ornate

doors and confessionals. The cathedral museum next door houses a wealth of religious art.
