Iglesia Catedral


Jujuy’s 18th-century cathedral replaced a predecessor destroyed by the Diaguita. The outstanding feature, salvaged from the original church, is the gold-laminated baroque pulpit, thought to be built by local artisans trained by a European master. The garden courtyard is a popular meeting place and venue for events. There's an attached museum (AR$20) that displays a nice collection of sacred art.
