Trip Planner: South America / Argentina / Capital Federal District / Buenos Aires / Catedral Primada
Despite its undoubted importance as a religious landmark, Catedral Primada is best known as the burial site of General Jose de San Martin, Argentina's celebrated national hero. You can see San Martin's sarcophagus at a mausoleum inside the church--note the statues of three women guarding the general and representing Argentina, Chile, and Peru. The somber cathedral, which looks more like a bank building from the outside, also contains the remains of other Argentinean war heroes.

Catedral Primada reviews
Magnifique place where you can see the mausoleum of San Martin Father of the country. I visit that with the help of the great company of Argentina Elite Transfers and Tours and their guide more »
Beautiful church, with paintings and frescos on the walls,. Believe Pope Francis administered communion here. This is worth a peek! more »
Conveniently in the very centre of Buenos Aires, this cathedral is striking outside with a beautiful interior. Plenty of minor rooms and corners to explore. Many ceremonies seem to happen from day to day. Not to be missed if you're in BA.
Beautiful Cathedral with a slightly different feel from outside. The area it is in contains a number of historic landmarks and this Cathedral is worth wandering in and out of. It is the main Catholic church in Buenos Aires and has a beautiful interior.
