Iglesia de San Francisco:
The Church of San Francisco is one of Salta's most loved buildings. The church's majestic white pillars and bright facade are engraved in the heart of many Argentines. Originally built in 1625, the structure was rebuilt in 1882 after a fire destroyed the old structure. A 173 foot belfry houses a bell made from the bronze of cannons used in the Argentine War of Indipendence.
The Salta Cathedral stands in front of the central plaza. Around the alter, four large frescos of the gospel writers are not be missed. Inside there is also a pantheon containing the tombs of many heroes from the War of Independance.
Casa de Hernández:
This beautifully whitewashed building houses the Museo de la Ciudad(City Museum). The museum has an excelent collection of musical instruments and many rooms display the history of Salta with photographs and paintings.
