San Miguel Garicoits, Montevideo

The Church of Saint Michael Garicoits (Spanish: Iglesia de San Miguel Garicoits), popularly known as Iglesia de los Vascos (Spanish for "the church of the Basque people") is a Roman Catholic parish church in Montevideo, Uruguay.

The origins of this temple date back to 1856, when the first Betharram Fathers arrived. An important part of the social and religious life of Basque immigrants was linked with this church for decades; services were held in Euskera back then. The church, designed by French architect Víctor Rabú in eclectic historicist style, was consecrated in 1870.
