  • It is above all a Catholic Church, a place of prayer. It shows on the one hand of a certain type of eclectic religious architecture and on the other of the economic clout of some of the Argentine families. In Buenos Aires there are other churches built by families at the same time. Mostly European materials, worked and assembled by extraordinary Argentine artisans, many of them European immigrants. Magnificent, as an example of furniture religious, confessionals, magnificently carved hardwoods. For him who understands, the Blessed Sacrament is permanently exposed. Very interesting the crypt, which you can visit on Saturday evening, where is the mausoleum of Mercedes Castellanos de Anchorena and the tomb of Cardinal Copello.

  • Too beautiful. Close to attractions such as Pacific Galleries and Florida Street, just 2 blocks away. The architecture is fantastic, with beautiful religious art. Very quiet environment.

  • It is a beautiful church, unique in its architecture. It deserves to be visited. It is also very quiet.

  • It is one of the most beautiful churches of the city and very visited by tourists. However, this somewhat hidden since it is completely covered by the Kavanagh building. It was built by the aristocratic Anchorena family more than one century ago and, according to the legend, the Kavanagh family built the magnificent tower to plug the Church due to a conflict between the families. And although the building does not have great photos of its exterior, the interior of the Church is a true work of art that can be seen without obstacles.
