Categories: Sacred & Religious Sites, Tourist Spots
Get a sense of a darker chapter in the city's history at Museo de la Iglesia Parroquial San Pedro González Telmo, Buenos Aires' storied main church. This grandiose structure was restored by architect Pelayo Sainz in the early 20th century in an eclectic Neo-Baroque style. Survey the plaques outside commemorating those that died during the yellow fever outbreak of 1871, which also signaled the end of the city's prosperous period due to the affluent populace moving elsewhere. The church served as an important place of care and respite during those troubled times. Note the slab of white marble at the entrance, marking the tomb of the fourth parson, P. J. A. Martinez. At the top of the structure between the church's two famed towers is a statue of the patron saint of sailors, San Pedro Gonzalez Telmo.
