Basilica Nuestra Senora de la Merced, Buenos Aires

4.8
Constructed over the course of the 18th century, Basilica Nuestra Senora de la Merced represents one of the oldest and most storied in Buenos Aires. A Neo-Renaissance remodeling of the building took place from 1894 to 1900, under the direction of Argentine architect Juan Antonio Buschiazzo. Much of the interior and exterior from this period has remained the same, so visiting the church provides an excellent glimpse into an important part of Buenos Aires' history. Inside, inspect the intricate artwork of the altar, and inquire about the schedule of organ concerts held here.

  • We were pleasantly surprised by this Basilica, as it was not in the plans to visit it, but being only half a block from the hotel, we entered. Beautifully decorated, beautiful paintings! Very well maintained! Unmissable if you're walking around the area!

  • By chance I was walking to the Hotel where I was staying and went through this church, I decided to enter, still with suitcase and everything and it was like "Wow!". For those who are fans or not of architecture can not lose. She's beautiful.

  • She's beautiful. It is located in a central area, easily accessible and in a traditional neighborhood of the city. The history of its construction is very interesting. To visit her if you're around and have time.
