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.
