  • The Cathedral is in Classical and NeoClassical Parisian Architecture. Was very interesting and beautiful. Worth a stop  more »
  • Very, very much so. We always try to visit a couple of churches and cathedrals when we are in a new city. Glad we did this time. We found this to be a truly spectacular piece of art. No other way to....  more »

  • It is unbelievable, bearing in mind that this church was built as a private church by and for a unique family Anchorena. It is a very opulent building with a very special interior. Every detail is unique and there is so much jewelry. For example, many different types of marbles were used. There are mosaics, filigree wood carvings. There are 8 confessionals inside, all individually decorated with elaborate woodwork. The altar is very huge. Also the floor is very special with colored stones. The fact that it is a basilica also means that it is a particularly venerable, meaningful church, as this award is given only by the Pope. It is a highlight in Buenos Aires but it's hidden, in the middle of a side street between two other buildings. The crypta can be visited only on Friday from 9 to 3 p.m. What drove Mercedes Castellanos de Anchorena to build such a magnificent church for herself?
