Museo de la Iglesia Parroquial San Pedro González Telmo, Buenos Aires
(4.1/5 based on 70+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • worth going to meet outside and inside. lovely architecture, all crafted, despite being Jesuit (which are usually simpler)

  • Also known as the Church of our Lady of Belen, this 700 Church was built by the Jesuits in honor of San Pedro González Telmo, patron saint of sailors. The effigy of the Saint also appears on the façade and in the sober Interior, where only the apse is noteworthy.

  • Church which gives its name to the neighborhood, has a simple interior and a front well adorned. Close to the Dorrego square, it's worth the visit!
