The cathedral is nice and worth the visit. But the real treat is to climb up the tower stairs and enjoy a nice view. Try to go late in the afternoon so to glimpse at the sunset, a very nice setting indeed.

Cathedral is famous for its ceremonial wedding of Eva Peron. It was nice cathedral and nice escape from Buenos Aires by bus.

It's a place that you can't miss here. The architecture is nice the tour inside is the best. You're going to learn a lot about the history and the view of the city in the top is amazing.
