Catedral Metropolitana review Rate it

On the western side of the plaza is this neo-classical cathedral. The plan for the cream-coloured building, the sixth cathedral on this site, was hatched in 1753; the first façade was blessed in 1791, and the final touches were added in 1910. The right-hand nave houses a mausoleum for the remains of José de San Martín, Argentina's 'liberator'.
