Santo Domingo Monastery

Updated: Apr 23

This 18th-century Dominican convent has been a central building in Buenos Aires’ history. It was under siege during the British invasions of the early 19th century and was used as museum when the Dominican orders were expelled about 20 years later. It now houses the tomb of Manuel Belgrano, one of the country’s national heroes of independence. The interior is in the classic Spanish colonial style, with marble and intricate painted details. Due to the convent’s excellent location between Plaza Dorrego and Plaza de Mayo, it’s worth stopping by when walking down to San Telmo from the city center.

Av Belgrano 422, San Telmo, Buenos Aires, Argentina
