Trip Planner: South America / Argentina / Capital Federal District / Buenos Aires / Basilica de Nuestra Senora Del Pilar
Basilica de Nuestra Senora Del Pilar is considered a national treasure for its six Baroque altars, including one coated with Peruvian engraved silver. Built in 1732 by Franciscans, the church features a whitewashed classical exterior with a simple bell tower, which stands in contrast to the gleaming gold and silver nuances of the richly decorated interior. The gallery windows provide views of the cemetery with many statues of angels, while the museum, which occupies the quarters of a former cloister, boasts a collection of manuscripts, liturgical objects, paintings, sculptures, and photographs. During the weekends, a handcraft fair occupies the park and the plaza surrounding the church.

Pretty Church just down the hill from the Recoleta Cemetery. This Church has a colonial history and is worth stopping by on your way to or from the Cemetery. The park outside offers a relaxing break from the sun and the tourist sites if you wear yourself out on running between things to see and do.
A meeting point for social activities with historic places very close and a broad diversity of restaurants and bars in the area make unique this area of the city.
