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.

Very well conserved church, where the pope used to pray mases.

Historical place, there is a very nice cript, a special place for independency hero Juan de San Martin guarded by 2 soldiers. Around noon we were able to see the guard change

This was one of the finest church and very we'll maintained and it has a lot of historical importance attached to it. The current pope was the cardinal In this church . Moreover it is a well maintained church . Worth a visit

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 have been posting and dropping comments on Buenos Aires Cathedral which is next to Plaza de Mayo, and nowhere near Retiro!!! So the address associated with this church is wrong as well. Also, THIS IS NOT THE CHURCH WHERE POPE FRANCIS USED TO WORK! IN FACT, WHEN HE WAS BUENOS AIRES BISHOP, HE´D WORK AT CATEDRAL METROPOLITANA NEXT TO PLAZA DE MAYO!!

PS: CHECK THE PHOTOS I´VE UPLOADED TO SEE THE CORRECT PICTURES.

Went to 1100 o clock Sunday service and soon realised why the congregation was so small. Priest mumbled incoherently for a long time and clearly inspired no one. Church is nice but the inspiration was appallingly low.
