Basilica Nuestra Señora del Pilar, Buenos Aires: 16 reviews and 26 photos
Set on the north side of the Recoleta cemetery, this church is the second oldest – 1732 – in BsAs. It is a treasure house of colonial architecture and sacred art. Guided tours are offered hourly through the old cloisters. In front of the church, to the east, begins a swath of parks that swings around to the north and extends to the northwest, separated from the huge Parque 3 de Febraro by a few stylish blocks of Palermo Chico.
On the weekends, a large art and craft fair is held along the walks in front of the church with thousands to be found browsing about the different stalls or sunbathing on bits of grass between the paths.
Address: 1898 Calle Junin
