“Strangely moving”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

This is a relatively new church, with no particularly distinctive architecture or art (there are some interesting stained glass windows showing native people slaughtering Christian missionaries!). But it seemed to me harmonious, and oddly but movingly spiritual. Well worth a visit.

“Peaceful and pretty”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

Lovely windows, great ambiance, and a peaceful place to visit. There are nice lawns surrounding the church where people just come to meet and sit and socialise.

“Another of those special churches”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Attended whilst service was in progress.What can I say it was absolutely lovely.There is something special about churches in South America. The people love their religion and behave accordingly.This is transferred to the places of worship and you feel it

“Nice to see”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

The church is nice to see, nothing too special. As the whole town of Bariloche is not too special, it's full of tourist traps and students... I would not visit there again. Best option is to drive through with a car and enjoy the nature which is really much more appealing and rewarding.
