Yes, that’s a pair of skulls on your right as you enter the basilica. But the centerpiece of this gleaming white colonial church, built by Jesuits in 1716, is a Peruvian altar adorned with silver from Argentina’s northwest. Inside, head to the left to visit the small but historic cloisters museum (open 10:30am to 6:15pm Monday to Saturday and 2:30pm to 6:15pm Sunday); it's home to religious vestments, paintings, writings and interesting artifacts. You can also snap a photo of the Recoleta cemetery through window grills
