If you're in Buenos Aires, you HAVE to go to Tierra Santa. It's a weird religious theme park with amusing animatronic shows depicting the last supper and the creation of life, and there's a huge Jesus status that's resurrected several times a day. It was one of the weirdest experiences I've ever had, but definitely a whole lot of fun.

First, if you're in Argentina, which is Spanish-speaking, don't expect everything and everyone to speak English! If that's what you want, maybe you should stick to English-speaking countries. That said, you don't really need to be able to speak Spanish here to enjoy the experience. Most of the depicted scenes are common enough that you will recognise the stories behind... More

Well, I went there because it would be an interest subject for my college paper. It was super weird and maybe its because I'm not very religious but I'm never going back.

We went to this bizarre place and found it very entertaining. We aren't religious at all but imagine if you are it does tell various biblical scenes reasonably well. That said we found ourselves stunned and giggling a lot of the time, the massive Jesus that rises up is a sight to behold! It's quite a bit of a drive... More

Here the biblical past is choregraphed and projected in mechanical and live beings. Great period food and artifacts.

We visited just out of morbid curiosity - and ended up loving it! It's such a bizarre concept and it is taken really seriously as a sort of pilgrimage by a lot of visitors - we didn't do this and instead wandered around and took photos with the many many large plastic scenes from the bible, had some wine and...

We went for a cheap laugh during our trip to Buenos Aires and that's exactly what we got! The staff costumes were probably the highlight of the day! The park could definitely be improved with the addition of a few rides though. We were disappointed that the rising Jesus statue was not working when we were there.

Staying in Belgrano

Neighbourhood Profile
Belgrano
As one of the main commercial hubs of Buenos Aires, Belgrano has something for everyone. The myriad of shop windows in Cabildo Ave. will draw you in, but it is Chinatown — an area of no more than two square blocks — which will keep you hooked. Crowned by an ornate arch marking its entrance and filled with small stores packed to the brim, it is a place where colour and scent emanate from every corner, particularly during the Chinese New Year when they spill over to surrounding areas. But if you prefer a quieter atmosphere, the residential quarter of Belgrano is the perfect destination. This section of town features some of the most magnificent mansions in the city, spread out on cobbled streets lined by tall, majestic trees: a true feast for the eyes.
