Notes on the Geography of Argentina: Avenida de Mayo: Photo 15

world pictures Argentina: Avenida de Mayo

Look like a church to you? Me neither, but facing the old town hall this is the Metropolitan Cathedral, with a facade from the early 19th century. The architects were French and presumably repelled by the thought of yet another church. The pediment, from the 1860s, shows Joseph and his brothers, an apparent allusion to peacemaking between the parties who fought each other during Argentina's revolutionary war.
