The confessional box made of cactus wood was is an interesting use of this material. The lack of much decoration probably reflects the small size of Cachi and the wealth of the town.

Larger and with a higher ceiling than most (but still the cactus wood), this is a pleasant church. The stations of the cross are in local tapistry style, not great art, but an interesting naïve style.

Like the rest of Cachi, the Iglesias offers a look back into the past, a reminder of a slower more peaceful pace. Look closely the church confessional and ceiling is made of cactus.

Spent a while admiring the church admits a raging heat and swirling wind. Overall it's worth going into and spending a few minutes enjoying the quiet. Respect the parishioners in the church - the town is very religious and they were there praying.

Typical Catholic church right next to the main square. Very dark and cool inside. Well kept. There was a dog sleeping in the entrance next to a big stone pot with a water dish under it. Cute!

A very simple church, quite beautiful and on the main plaza - it makes for great photo opportunities. On the inside though is the real treat - the roof is supported by beams of cactus wood, making this place unusual and unique of all the...More
