Catedral Metropolitana, Buenos Aires
Categories: Sacred & Religious Sites, Tourist Spots
Despite its undoubted importance as a religious landmark, Catedral Metropolitana is best known as the burial site of General Jose de San Martin, Argentina's celebrated national hero. You can see San Martin's sarcophagus at a mausoleum inside the church--note the statues of three women guarding the general and representing Argentina, Chile, and Peru. The somber cathedral, which looks more like a bank building from the outside, also contains the remains of other Argentinean war heroes.

An enormous cathedral - a very simple yet pleasing visit in one of the places the current pope went to. The entrance is completely free, but you can buy souvenirs in its shop.

Very beautiful cathedral, near the Subte and by the way you have to take care with homeless people.
A beautiful building, it has a lot of history and it's definitely worth a visit.
Although I am an atheist I have to admit this is a beautiful construction.
