Austrian Ernst Pfrechner and built by the engineer Luis Curutchet, was raised with a rare speed for the time, a year and five months. It is neo-Gothic style and has a tower seventy-two meters in height and of 27 meters. The high altar of Carrara marble and was executed in that Italian city by artist Bonetti. The stained glass windows, which were carried out on rock crystal by a firm from Germany, reaching a surface of 450 square meters, one of the largest in South America. Outside, the façade has a single central tower with rosette, watch on all four sides, Bell Tower and upper. Another needle, smaller in size, is located on the cruise. The ornamental elements refer almost exclusively to the gargoyles, with mythological animals, the gable (auction acute triangle that tops some Gothic buildings) is crowned by the sculpture of St. Patrick. Inside your equipment deserves highlight is the magnificent 4,700 pipe organ from the firm of g. f.

It is also remarkable the rich craftsmanship of the built-in wooden confessionals.
