La Basilica alberga la historia de nuestro pais, mas específicamente de la ciudad de buenos aires, enclavada en la zona de retiro, y mandada a construir por la Flia Anchorena. more »The Basilica houses the history of our country, more specifically the city of good air, nestled in the area of retreat, and ordered to be built by the Flia Anchorena.
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?
This is Bethle... Cripta san Pedro y Julian eymard built in 1916.you need to be here to see for yourself how magnificenty this temple of God is
