Cachi Iglesia, Cachi

#3 of 10 in Things to do in Cachi
Step off the main square to visit Cachi Iglesia, a National Historic Landmark and Catholic church still in use. View the tall, white walls from the outside and the three bells in the tower, and then head inside to appreciate the simple decorations. Cactus wood supports the roof of the 18th-century building, making it unique from other Catholic churches in the country, and the altar features an image of Jesus Christ with an angel on each side. The people of the town still use the church as a place of worship and often stop by to pray.

  • Here is a good example of a small rural church. It is on the plaza and is in good condition. The interior is plain and uses the local cactus 'wood'.  more »
  • Unique architecture and excellent maintenance that stands of very much care of the temple. Cardon ceiling called the view as soon as you enter. A cute art shelter and the mix of indigenous and Spanish hand giving the result of images that accompany the altarpiece. A place to place another recommended!

  • Cachi is beautiful and its church is a place that cannot fail to visit. Very simple on the outside and inside but owner of a very particular beauty. It highlights Cardon's roof inside. They are located in front of a square that allows to have a good view of the temple.
