  • I didn't went inside of this cathedral but it's looking really nice and picturesque from the outside with a nice park around it where I spend some time chilling out.

  • Impressive small city church overlooking the lake & mountains. Immense gray stone church with high ceilings and beautiful stained glass windows. Church is relatively new -- it opened in 1946.

  • Rating it a 5 star because of it close location to the beautiful lake and its amazing mountains. The view is exceptional. Also, it has a large front and back yard to relax on a afternoon Finally, it is in the main center of the town. Entrance is free.
  • An interesting place that looks old from the outside but it was built in the 1940s and remains strangely unfinished inside, which adds some interest.
  • Very beautiful cathedral and a peaceful place. Free to visit. It is sad to see so much blatant graffiti on the external walls. Why would anyone feel that it is okay to destroy this beautiful place? The graffitti is garbage. I was in Bariloche many years ago and am surprised to see how much of the city's public places have been ruined with bad graffiti art. I would be interested to hear a locals perspective about political statements written or what the city is doing to address the problem.
  • A lovely spot to sit and reflect. We were lucky enough to be here when a concert was taking place and the accoustics in the building are very good. When you visit please remember that this ia a place of worship and you should act accordingly.
  • The stations of the cross are worth going for. Very politcal in nature. Indigenous people featured in the stained glass windows.
