"SALVUM FAC POPULUM TUUM", a text on the walls of the Metropolitan Cathedral and the place where the great liberator San Martin is burried.
The cathedral itself reminds me at the "Pantheon building" in Paris, France and one of the proofs that a lot of architects building Buenos Aires were inspired by the french architecture in general.
The twelve pillons in the front symbolizes the twelve apostels of the bible
