  • I had to take pictures of the tiled floor. The workmanship was outstanding. It was crowded with tourists inside but not to the point where you could not enjoy the beauty of the church.  more »

  • It is unbelievable, bearing in mind that this church was built as a private church by and for a unique family Anchorena. It is a very opulent building with a very special interior. Every detail is unique and there is so much jewelry. For example, many different types of marbles were used. There are mosaics, filigree wood carvings. There are 8 confessionals inside, all individually decorated with elaborate woodwork. The altar is very huge. Also the floor is very special with colored stones. The fact that it is a basilica also means that it is a particularly venerable, meaningful church, as this award is given only by the Pope. It is a highlight in Buenos Aires but it's hidden, in the middle of a side street between two other buildings. The crypta can be visited only on Friday from 9 to 3 p.m. What drove Mercedes Castellanos de Anchorena to build such a magnificent church for herself?
