Basilica Nuestra Senora de la Merced, Buenos Aires

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.

  • The city of Buenos Aires is rich in churches and other religious structures. The Basilica of our Mrs. of the Mercedes is more that deserve to be visited and appreciated, is very beautiful and if possible try to accompany a mass there.

  • I think it is a jewel, given their age. Significantly improved their interior appearance. It shows the low value given for years to much of our cultural heritage.

  • One of the oldest churches in Buenos Aires. It is a typical Church worth enter to take a look.
