This magenta-and-yellow church is Salta’s most striking. The exuberant facade is topped by a slender tower; inside are several much-venerated images, including the Niño Jesús de Aracoeli, a rather spooky crowned figure. There’s a lovely garden cloister, accessed via tours (English available, AR$40; from 10am to 1pm and 2pm to 6:30pm Tuesday to Saturday) that include a mediocre museum of religious art and treasures.
