Fodor's Buenos Aires
Basílica de Nuestra Señora del Pilar
Basílica de Nuestra Señora del Pilar Review
This basilica beside the famous Cementerio de la Recoleta on Junín is where Buenos Aires' elite families hold weddings and other ceremonies. It was built by the Recoleto friars in 1732, and is considered a national treasure for its six German Baroque–style altars. The central one is overlaid with Peruvian engraved silver; another contains relics and was sent by Spain's King Carlos III.
Museo de los Claustros del Pilar. In the cloisters, which date from 1716, is the Museo de los Claustros del Pilar, a small museum of religious artifacts as well as pictures and photographs documenting Recoleta's evolution. There are excellent views of the cemetery from upstairs windows. 5 pesos. Mon.–Sat. 10:30–6:15, Sun. 2:30–6:15.
