Basilica Nuestra Senora de la Merced, Buenos Aires
(4.9/5 based on 100+ 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. Make Basilica Nuestra Senora de la Merced a part of your Buenos Aires vacation plans using our Buenos Aires trip generator.

  • Really enjoyed visiting this old church. It's very small but plenty of history and extremely decorative. Worth a visit if passing.
