  • Beautiful basilica, the Museum is small but interesting. The staff there is very friendly. They offer guided tours.

  • It is located between street Lavalle and Belgrano, right where a monument indicates the kilometer 0 of the city. It was the first building built by the Franciscans between 1611 and 1618 and subjected to several reconstructions. It has a wooden pulpit carved with designs originating in the Peruvian city of Cuzco, which is to admire and boasts 7 carrara marble altars. It is very nice both day and night. Not visited the part of the Museum, only the Basilica.

  • The Museum is very interesting, should not be left aside his visit, although it is small it is worthwhile. The Basilica of San Francesco is precious and must be seen at night, all lit.
