A lot of weddings in here. It's hidden from view and quite pretty, if youre in the area, its worth checking out.

The beauty of this church was much like those we've seen in Italy, only newer. This is nicest we've seen in BA.

Stumbled across this beautiful old church with amazing architecture, with plenty of history located near San Martin Plaza. Even if you aren't religious it is a comforting place to take a rest.

Take the time to walk through this Basilica adjacent to the Recoleta Cemetery. Also walk through the Cloister area--enter to the left when you are inside the Basilica. $1 or $2 admission to the Cloister.

We really enjoyed the visit to this church. Lots of detail to look at and to photograph. Not hard to walk to from most central locations in BA.

The church is really beautiful, and it's just next to Casa Rosada, which is another tourist attraction. Totally worth visiting.

Sometimes I wonder if the C's compete with the B's for most ornate meet'n sites or if they just have too many pesos. Whatever, the architecture is interesting.

Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings
combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to
make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy
sophistication. However, the non-stop foot traffic to
and from Retiro train and bus terminals, accompanied
by the myriad of trucks leaving and arriving at the
port, mean this neighborhood is never truly at rest.

You have to connect with the line to Plaza San Martin and then walk a few blocks. If you like walk you can go walking its about half an hour max. I dis it, its a nice walk.”
