Close the city center. Go and enjoy French-style church built by the Anchorena family in 1916. Check out the original tiled floor, stained-glass windows, stone columns and wedding-cake-like altar

Beautiful church near downtown, can be part of day tour around downtown. Reserve at least one hour for the tour, or attend sunday mass, unique local flavor.

The Basilica del Santisimo Sacramento is located near Plaza San Martin. It´s a little bit hidden from viewers and passers-by, so you need to take passage Kavanagh in the back of Kavanagh building. THere´s an interesting love story behind this church and the Kavanagh building, which explains why the church appears to be hidden by Kavanagh building. WARNING: most tourists... More
