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; it’s home to religious vestments, paintings, writings and interesting artifacts, and there are good views of Recoleta cemetery.
