    Church inaugurated in the year 1870, maintains the characteristic of the Franciscan order which is characterized by simplicity, your structure. Internally, lies in reforms, which hindered our observation of details, but is was to observe the oldest organ in the country. Worth the visit because the Church was declared a national historic monument, even in works. Recommend

    This church is the oldest in Montevideo. They have repaired it recently. It is worth visiting it. It is very close to the port and in the middle of the old town.

    Worth a visit for anyone who is hitting leg aimlessly through the historical centre. The Church doesn't have anything special and is in desperate need of a makeover inside.
