The Buenos Aires Metropolitan Cathedral (Spanish: Catedral Metropolitana de Buenos Aires) is the main Catholic church in Buenos Aires, Argentina. It is located in the city center, overlooking Plaza de Mayo, on the corner of San Martín and Rivadavia streets, in the San Nicolás neighbourhood. It is the mother church of the Archdiocese of Buenos Aires and the primatial church of Argentina.
The Cathedral of Buenos Aires was rebuilt several times since its humble origins in the 16th century. The present building is a mix of architectural styles, with an 18th-century nave and dome and a severe, 19th-century Neoclassical façade without towers. The interior keeps precious 18th-century statues and altarpieces, as well as abundant Neo-Renaissance and Neo-Baroque decoration.

Beautiful. My school exchange group weren't modestly dressed and displayed insensitivity to the beginning of the porteños' mass. They were loud and walking infront of families attending mass. If i ever live in Argentina I will be coming to mass here such lovely catholics in this part of the world

Beautiful cathedral. If you are around the vicinity, why not spare 30 mins of your time to visit this place?

It's a beautiful cathedral. Close to all other attractions in the centre and very nice to visit with family, friends and couple.

Cool cathedral and beautiful on the inside. It was the seat of Pope Francis when he was the archbishop. There's also a changing of the guards that protects the tomb of General San Martín. The guards although definitely do not have as much discipline as British or Canadian guards. Don't be confused by the exterior of the Parthenon, it is the cathedral.
