It's locational is pretty awesome but the building is nothing out of this world. It's located in the center of Bariloche so you wouldn't miss. Lovely park to sit and relax near by.

We sat here for 5 minutes in the middle of a hot day. Calm and the windows let the light in well - very decorative.

A classic church shape with simple yet elegant interior of wood and stone construction and many stained glass windows. Huge stone altar, nicely decorated. Taped music provides a spiritual atmosphere.

Went there for a choral concert as we were in Bariloche during the Snow Festival week. The cathedral is very beautiful with great acoustics. The choral concert turned out to be 10 choirs placed throughout the cathedral. That was one of the highlights of our trip to Patagonia.

Although interior is simple, it has beautiful stained glasses. Exterior surrounded by a simple garden but nice place to walk and admire its stoned walls.

This is a wonderful cathedral with stone walls, stained glass windows, historic photos and modern sermon area. I went twice just to take it all in. Not your typical cathedral and you can walk around the entire inside perimeter.

as you walk around town take a stop to see the church for 15 minutes but if you miss it don't feel bad as it is nothing too special. The architecture is similar to the civic center but nothing too spectacular inside to see.

The interior of this church was particularly pleasing. The Stations of the Cross are one of 2 most creative sets we have seen anywhere in the world. Stop, sit, look around and be treated, without the oft-seen gaudy, gold finishes in too many churches around the world (Porto, Portugal being the 'gold-medal' winner in this category).
