Photographer's Note

I was walking in front of the church when I noticed how the last sunbeams went through it emphasizing the architectonic details

The church was built in 1732 by the "recoletos" monks,it had an orchard that nowadays is Recoleta Cemetery
The architecture is of Baroque style with the only double bell-tower in Buenos Aires
Inside, an interesting detail is the beautiful tiled plinth, although rebuilt, retaining many original pieces of Talavera
The altar is a piece of silverware from Upper Peru that shows the sun and moon patterns, noticing the author's indigenous factory, left as witnesses
