Trip Planner: South America / Argentina / Northern Argentina / Province of Salta / Cachi / Cachi Iglesia
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.

Cachi Iglesia Reviews
Llegamos a Cachi en excursión desde Salta cerca del mediodía. Hacía mucho calor y toda la zona estaba casi desierta. Encontramos un pequeño lugar frente a la plaza para poder comer algo rápido. Luego ... more »We arrived in Cachi on a tour from Salta near noon. It was very hot and the whole area was almost deserted. We found a small place in front of the square so we could eat something quick. Then we went to visit the simple church of colonial architecture, declared a National Historic Monument in 1945. Its facade was restored in 1947 and its three bells stand out. Its walls are made of adobe on boulders and its ceiling made of cardon wood. I was able to have a beautiful moment of peace in the solitude of its interior.
chiesa piccola e molto carina in un posto unico, nel piccolo centro di cachi di fianco alla piazza principale con tetto in cardones. more »Small and very pretty church in a unique place, in the small persive town next to the main square with cardones roof.
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.
