Iglesia de la Piedad, Buenos Aires

(4.6/5 based on 60+ reviews on the web)
With its pale columns, neoclassical facade, and soaring interior, Iglesia de la Piedad commands a striking presence. The church's history dates back to 1700, when permission was initially sought to build a church on this site (back then, the outskirts of town). The present instantiation dates from 1895 and represents the work of architects Jose and Nicolas Canale, as well as Juan Antonio Busquiazzo. Its two side towers and six columns forming the portico almost seems to play an optical trick, as the tall, cavernous dome appears more imposing from the inside. Located in the heart of town, this popular church attracts crowds. Plan to visit Iglesia de la Piedad during your Buenos Aires vacation using our convenient Buenos Aires vacation trip planner.

  • Among all the things that one can appreciate, we must point out that on the right side of the temple is the mausoleum that holds the remains of Mary Amtonia of San Jose (Paz y Figueroa) also called Mama Antula. Santiago del Estero born in 1730 and died on March 7, 1799, a consecrated lay woman who was beatified August 27, 2016, in his home province. next to his statue was conducted a series of stained glass windows that reflect its history

  • The beautiful church is a refuge of peace, watered by a beautiful architecture. The frescoes, columns, arches and stained glass Windows are a show piece and regardless of the faith of each one, is a place of meditation and serenity.
