Peaceful place. Quiet. Certainly beautiful with wonderful architecture on the inside. Not one of the most popular churches but a hidden gem. Highly recommended and a surprising find here. Was not very busy when I was here mid-day mid-week.

Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings
combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to
make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy
