The church has a nice series of stain glass windows which tell the story of the missionaries who cam to Argentina.

We spent 45 minutes here admiring this cathedral. It is new, by cathedral standards, having been built during the mid 1940's, but it is VERY unique on the inside due to the rock interior. The stained glass windows are beautiful and the stations of the cross are extremely unique. I strongly recommend a visit. There are also interesting historical paintings... More

Nice to see while you drive around, but there are no artistic or historical reasons to spare vacation time to visit it. The view of course is nice, since it is by the lake...but that is about it....

Lovely Cathedral adjacent to the water and lose to the city centre. One of the most beautiful piece of architecture in Bariloche. Makes for some lovely pics and an easy walk from the town centre.

We managed to get in for a few minutes after a service. It was locked up shortly after. The stained glass windows were quite nice. This is a fairly recent building, finished in 1946. Well worth a visit as it is a bit different architecturally.

The catedral is modern with a feeling that it wasn't quite completed. I loved the stonework and the design. I would say that if you are in the city it is worth a visit but I would not make a trip just to see the catedral.

The catedral is not old by cathedral standards, and has had substantial repair work done. The decoration inside is impressive, and it is well situated with a clear view of Nahuel Haupi lake ... and exposure to the prevailing wind.

The Catedral de San Carlos de Bariloche is a very impressive one. They have beautiful art work all around the inside and the outside structure looks very nice. I do think however that the ceilings leave much to be desired.

Free, easy to walk through and worth a visit. The stained glass and high ceilings are great. Looks like there might be a calendar for sale. Definitely check it out!

This beautiful church dominates Bariloche's skyline when viewed from the lake and is just as pretty up-close. Even if you are not religious, you may wish to enter the church to experience its tranquility or just admire the architecture. Of particular note is that the Catholic churches in many South American countries also display national flags (see picture) which I... More
