Basilica del Santisimo Sacramento is slightly off the main tourist route. It is beautiful inside. The white altar makes it seem light and bright inside. The basilica has a lovely warm feel to it.

Saw this beautiful church celebrating 100 years while walking by, did not know it is one of the top attractions in the city at the time, worth a visit if you are religious, or even if not to admire the beautiful structure

Was our first temple after visiting San Martin park in our first day in Buenos Aires. It is easy to arrive there, and this temple is perfect to pray.

The altar of this Church is something amazing. The music and the atmosphere invites you to stay for a while either to pray or just to think. You will get a very nice sensation.

A lot of weddings in here. It's hidden from view and quite pretty, if youre in the area, its worth checking out.

Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings
combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to
make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy
sophistication. However, the non-stop foot traffic to
and from Retiro train and bus terminals, accompanied
by the myriad of trucks leaving and arriving at the
port, mean this neighbourhood is never truly at rest.

You have to connect with the line to Plaza San Martin and then walk a few blocks. If you like walk you can go walking its about half an hour max. I dis it, its a nice walk.”
