Iglesia Santa Catalina information
Santa Catalina was founded in 1745, when it became Buenos Aires’ first convent. In 1806 British troops invaded the city, and in July 1807 they took shelter in the convent. The soldiers holed up here for two days, and despite damaging the property did not hurt the nuns. Today Santa Catalina is a church, and a peek inside reveals beautiful gilded works and a baroque altarpiece created by Isidro Lorea, a Spanish carver.
