Basilica Nuestra Senora de la Merced, Buenos Aires

(100+ reviews on the web)
Church
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. Make Basilica Nuestra Senora de la Merced a part of your Buenos Aires vacation plans using our Buenos Aires trip generator.

  • Already his forehead ahead of the architectural style in a more than 200-year-old building according to their plate (1779). Very full of details in her grating and its facade. From the outside it looks larger than what is seen in its interior. In the details are even more conspicuous, columns and roof worked in addition to the paintings on their walls. Stained glass windows in the dome and many altars in the side. The nave has no galleries, only a passageway on the side of the banks and on the altars by repeating the extremely loaded details. Everything in very dark inside, gives an idea of something very lubre. It has an old convent next door, where they work today two restaurants, an art gallery, a mini Museum and more. It is something to see.
