Catedral de San Salvador de Jujuy, San Salvador de Jujuy

Pay your respects to Oscar Romero, a prominent human rights activist, at Catedral de San Salvador de Jujuy. Romero, the former Archbishop of El Salvador and a leading pacifist voice against the military's killing of civilians during the 60s and 70s, was assassinated in 1980 during mass, and laid to rest in the cathedral. Today, visitors flock to the cathedral's crypt to pay tribute to Romero. Also take a moment to admire the paintings displayed on the cathedral's largely white walls.

  • When we passed through Jujuy it was closed, there was a group protesting in the suburbs. It is a small and architecturally simple church; pity that we couldn't enjoy its interior, which will be another time.

  • Very pretty. Cute vitrauxs, majestic! It looks like Luján Cathedral, although rather smaller.
