Overview

Completed in 1783, this church housed the Natural History Museum and astronomic observatory under President Rivadavia. In 1835, the dictator Juan Manuel de Rosas repatriated the Dominican friars and in 1856 the second tower was built. An atrium houses the Mausoleum of General Manuel Belgrano, the creator of the Argentine flag, who was born and died near the church. This work by Hector Ximenez has a large base of red granite with two bas-reliefs representing the presentation of the Flag and the Battle of Tucuman.
