San Carlos Convent, San Lorenzo
(4.7/5 based on 70+ reviews on the web)
The San Carlos Convent is located in San Lorenzo, Santa Fe, in Argentina. The battle of San Lorenzo was fought next to it, and both the convent itself and the battlefield are National Historic Monuments of Argentina.HistoryWhen the jesuits were removed from the Viceroyalty of the Río de la Plata, the franciscan friars moved to the chapel at San Miguel del Carcarañal. In 1790 they sought to establish another one more distant from the Parana river, and governor Félix Aldao gave them the current location. In that year they built the chapel, a well, a house for the monk appointed to it and a shed for the laborers. The shed was expanded in 1792, and the chapel was fenced. The friars finally moved to it in 1796.Manuel Belgrano visited it in 1811, in his return from the Paraguay campaign, and the chapel helped him the following year to build the "Independencia" and "Libertad" batteries at modern Rosario. José de San Martín followed a royalist ship navigating the Parana, and hid his troops inside the convent. The ship landed near the chapel, attempting to pillage it, but San Martín madea surprise attack and defeated them at the Battle of San Lorenzo. The chapel was used after the battle to give medical treatment to the injured soldiers. The chapel was also the site where Belgrano, Estanislao López and Francisco Ramírez signed an armistice in 1819.

  • It is the place where San Martin book the only battle on Argentine soil. Impossible not be visited by an Argentine or any person interested in the story of Joseph of San Marin and of course Argentina history... It is to go back to those times. To know what these knowing much of our history. . Also have the historical pine, where San Martín wrote his part of war, lamentanlemente lightning, has dried it, but maintained the structure of pine and the place. Best regards.

  • The Museum is well organized, clean and well maintained. There is a huge amount of items of daily use and military elements of the time.
