Nuestra Señora del Rosario Basilica and Santo Domingo Convent Nuestra Señora del Rosario Basilica and Santo Domingo Convent

This is one of the basilica that better preserves the original structure with its Jesuit three nave floor, its two towers and chapels on each side that have a wood-carved altarpiece. It was inaugurated in 1755, with only one tower, the second one was built in 1856. It bears the footprints of an important past in Argentinian history among the true stories and legends. The truth is that in 1807 this Dominican order basilica suffered the consequences of the Second British Invasions in its tower when it received bullet impacts. Locals who were trying to kill the English that had gained power of its interior also attacked it. As a symbol of said facts, there are the flags Liniers took from the defeated British kept as treasures. Some years later, the Dominicans had to abandon the country during Rivadavia’s government and the church functioned as a Natural History Museum, that had an astronomic observatory installed in one of its towers. The Mausoleum of General Manuel Belgrano is located in the atrium, a very important character for Argentinian history and the creator of the national flag.
