Notes on the Geography of Argentina: Avenida de Mayo: Photo 19
Same here, with the Basilica of San Francisco. The Franciscans got a grant of land from Garay himself, but this church was not consecrated until 1783. It collapsed in 1807 and was rebuilt early in the 20th century in what has been described as Bavarian Baroque. No wonder: the architect was Ernesto Sackmann (1874-1968). The central statues up top show Saint Francis flanked by Dante and Giotto and with a kneeling Columbus.
Like the church of St. Ignatius, this one, too, was destroyed by fire in 1955.
