San Jose

Is one of the finest examples of colonial architecture in the Valleys Calchaquíes.
Situated in front of 9 de Julio Square and just steps from the Archaeological Museum
Its origin dates back to seventeenth century, being the Aramburu's family private chapel, was then donated to the village

There were several changes in its facade,from neoclassical till reach the current one reflecting
largely the original appearance


It preserves an ancient mud-walled structure with thick walls and smooth ceilings and wood spurge. It has no tower, but has a belfry with three bells, while a single nave extends inside over 35 meters.

As one of the parishes most representative of the area was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1945.

On March 19 the feast day of San Jose is celebrated
