  • It was the first Church in Buenos Aires. Made it the Jesuits with the mud of the era, in the poor Buenos Aires no stones or silver to bring it. The Jesuits managed was to make a beautiful temple.

  • The first Temple in Buenos Aires, founded by the Jesuits. Witness of the history of Buenos Aires. It integrates the Manzana de las Luces, with the Colegio Nacional Buenos Aires, the former Faculty of science and engineering and the Chamber of representatives.
