Adjacent to the Recoleta Cemetary, this 18th Century Jesuit church is the 2nd oldest building in Buenos Aires and has been extensively restored since. It is worth looking inside for its baroque silver alter piece and its pre-hispanic features. You can go upstairs to its cloisters, which were opened to the public in 1997, which is now a small musuem which houses religious artefacts over the centuries.

Fine view of the Jesuit Church and adjacent classical building, with an impressive tower and open air bell tower.
Would enjoy visiting and experiencing the museum and history.
Thanks for sharing,
