We were travelling as a family and our adults sons summed it up eloquently with their comment "awesome". A place to visit for quiet contemplation and respect for the locals who were praying there.

Next to the Recoleta cemetery this church was a great surprise. White washed and clean on the outside the church is very ornate inside. The white ceiling just enhances the ornate altar and side walls

true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this
neighbourhood is an experience like no other in Buenos
Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment
buildings, exclusive boutiques, and former mansions

an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll
