This church is adjacent to the Recoleta Cemetery, which makes it interesting just for being next to it. It's small, very old and quaint; even though it's not very attractive on the outside, the inside houses beautiful saint statues and an intricate altar and tabernacle....More

Beautiful and old. Grabbed a few great pictures from the inside. Was not very busy when I was there during the day, and it was nice to have the place almost to myself. Highly recommended and would return.

If you come all the way BA, you simply must visit Recoleta Cemetery, This one of two modest baroque churches in the city stands shyly next ot it. Take a peek before a drink at La Biela, across the street.

Interesting church, belonging to a cloister, when the Recoleta cemetery still used to be the orchard. Unfortunately, the tower wasn't open for the public until a Sunday in April. The views over the cemetary must be spectacular.

This beautiful old church should not be viewed just as an add-on to the cemetery next door as it is well worth a visit in its own right. It has a very interesting history and does not suffer from being quite as overly ornate as...More

I have seen may churches in my travels. I would consider this one average for a Catholic Church. But it is clean. We waited for the 3 o'clock changing of the guard but as usual they were running late and we left before it happend.

neighborhood is an experience like no other in Buenos
Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment
buildings, exclusive boutiques, and former mansions
turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude
an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll
