4.9/5 based on 95 reviews on the web
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.

  • Persistence in our case paid off. The 3rd time was the charm since it was closed the first 2 times we were by. Very ornate interior. I'm glad we didn't give up on trying to see it. 
  • Very nice building, it pays to take a penalty close to the Church and check out. really cool architecture
