Even though we aren't religious it was still a nice time visiting this church and we didn't realize until after entering that Pope Francis spoke here many times. It's a beautiful church and well worth a quick visit.

true hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires, walking down
streets lined with office buildings and banks. The
financial district is well-known for its vibrant
atmosphere and unstoppable rhythm during office hours.
After dark, the hubbub and migrates to Corrientes
