Basilica de Nuestra Senora Del Pilar, Buenos Aires
Categories: Architectural Buildings, Sacred & Religious Sites, Museums, Tourist Spots
Basilica de Nuestra Senora Del Pilar is considered a national treasure for its six Baroque altars, including one coated with Peruvian engraved silver. Built in 1732 by Franciscans, the church features a whitewashed classical exterior with a simple bell tower, which stands in contrast to the gleaming gold and silver nuances of the richly decorated interior. The gallery windows provide views of the cemetery with many statues of angels, while the museum, which occupies the quarters of a former cloister, boasts a collection of manuscripts, liturgical objects, paintings, sculptures, and photographs. During the weekends, a handcraft fair occupies the park and the plaza surrounding the church.

Están muy buenas las criptas
Beautiful Church in a great setting. Visit when the market is open in the park, and you can purchase a beautiful painting of the scene to remember your trip.
Underrated. The interior is well kept for a church that was built in 1732. Several antique artifacts exposed in the lodging where the Recollect padres lived.

Often ignored by tourists just rushing past on their way to Evita's grave nearby, this church is one of the few remaining Spanish colonial buildings in the city and its richly adorned interior more than merits a short look around
Muy bonita esta iglesia!
