Basílica de Nuestra Señora del Pilar Tours

1 Review

The white bell tower and baroque pediment of the Basílica de Nuestra Señora del Pilar sits at the heart of the affluent residential enclave of Recoleta.

The baroque interior features a golden statue of the Madonna, ornate altars, lovely cloisters and a small museum of religious artifacts.

The basilica overlooks the Recoleta Cemetery, one of Buenos Aires’ more unusual attractions. Follow the crowds to the grave of Eva Peron (Evita).

On weekends, Plaza Francia in front of the basilica comes alive with a large arts and crafts fair.
