  • Church of SAN FRANCISCO DE ASIS Cerrito 342, esq. Solis is Roman Catholicism which starts to build from a public contest of 1864, came to replace the ancient Jesuit Temple of 1724 (streets stones and Zabala) which was the first religious temple in Montevideo. It was awarded to the franco-uruguayo architect Víctor Rabu, who was inspired by the Basilica of St. Sernin in Toulouse and was opened in 1870. The tower with five bells and the crypt of the Lord of the patience of the subsoil are completed in 1895. The needle of the belfry was added in the middle of century XX. In eclectic style, combining selected elements of different styles of the past, Graeco-Roman and Gothic. Inside there are three naves with Dome, transept and semicircular apse. There are four chapels in the aisles. It is being restored since 2007, although still missing to make it on the facade of the Solís Street. Is a national historic landmark since 1975
