Situated in the historic centre of the city in the Bolivar district, the exterior and interior of the church was a sight to be hold. Having visited the Metropolitan Cathedral ahead of visiting here, it was a bit like cheese and chalk, the former underwhelming with this church being far more beautiful. With both being within easy reach of each others, one has time to compare and this wins easily. OK, do not miss out on the Metropolitan Cthedral but do not skip visiting here.

As you approach the baroque style entrance it's a humbling experience given the history of the church and compound surrounding it. It was one of a few that day that was open to the public. I took almost 40 pictures, the interior is just marvelous. Glad it was open!

San Ignacio De Loyola Church, Buenos Aires The San Ignacio De Loyola Church is the oldest in Buenos Aires. It was built by the Society of Jesus and forms part of a complex of Jesuit institutions called the Manzana de las Luces or the Block of Enlightenment. The San Ignacio De Loyola Church was designed by Jesuit architect Juan Kraus and built between 1710 and 1734. It was constructed in honor of the founder of the Jesuit order, Saint Ignatius of Loyola. It replaced an older adobe church that was constructed in 1675. The Jesuits were the first Europeans to settle in colonies established by Spain and their tradition of being a teaching order that educated the indigenous people earned the location, the name block of enlightenment. The most famous public school in Argentina is also located here. The San Ignacio De Loyola Church has an ornate Baroque façade. The interiors are covered with 18th century paintings. Notable among the paintings is the sliding canvas of Saint Ignatius of Loyola that was created in 1767. There are many 17th century underground tunnels that helped the Spanish while defending the country against the British. The San Ignacio De Loyola Church is open for visitors and they can also view some of the underground tunnels.

Perhaps my title doesn't do it justice, and it deserves a higher rating. Judging by other reviews it is quite historic. We looked at the outside many times, but didn't go inside unfortunately. One night whilst out photographing at midnight, I did catch a rare sight; a bride-to-be arriving for her wedding here! Look for the photos. Visit it if you're in the area, and tell me I should have gone inside.

It was very beautiful and interesting. A place of quietness and solitude in a bustling city. The interior is exquisite.
