CathedralThe Salta Cathedral stands in front of the central plaza. Around the altar, four large frescos of the gospel writers are not to be missed. Inside there is also a pantheon containing the tombs of many heroes from the War of Independance.This remarkable building was constructed in 1858 and has an outstanding altar completely made of gold. Inside the Cathedral are situated the images of 'Señor y Virgen del Milagro' (Lord and Virgin of the Miracle), the patron saints of Salta, together with the mortal remains of General Güemes who was a hero of the independence war. The place where these remains are buried is called 'Panteón de las Glorias del Norte' (North Heroes’ Graveyard).
