    The altar of this Church is something amazing. The music and the atmosphere invites you to stay for a while either to pray or just to think. You will get a very nice sensation.  more »

    We stayed in Tucumán Street and go walking along calle San Martin we have this historic monument, a pleasant surprise on the road. Built at the beginning of the century XX thanks to a donation, is full of details and highlights the marble altar.

    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.

Where to stay in Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires offers an impressive selection of budget-friendly and mid-range lodgings, as well as pricier, more luxurious options for visitors who don't mind splashing out. Good rooms are scattered across town, but your best bet for economical hostels remains San Telmo, a neighborhood on the edge of downtown. For boutique establishments and international five-star hotels, head to Palermo, Recoleta, or Puerto Madero, upscale neighborhoods drawing the majority of foreign visitors.
