Lovely Gothic style cathedral with wonderful stained glass. Unlike Italian churches the art is rather limited but overall it is beautiful.

It's a beautiful construction, but also very common. There are many better churches in Argentina, it's good only if you are tired of beaches!

Magnificent cathedral with beautiful artwork. Great history lessons to be had also. Don't forget to look above door on the way out to see the huge organ above. Read or do some research before going will make it a better experience too!

Beautiful carved wood altar and magnificent inlaid wood floor. Gorgeous stain glass windows too, but the netting to keep out the birds detracts from the viewing.
