Iglesia de San Francisco, Mendoza

Iglesia de San Francisco, Mendoza (must see)

The San Francisco Basilica is the first church built after the devastating earthquake of 1861. It was planned as a replacement for the old church destroyed by the earthquake, now known as the San Francisco Ruins. The basilica was raised in Renaissance style on 2,300 square meters. Iglesia de San Francisco is venerated throughout Mendoza due to the fact that it is home to the sacred image of “Nuestra Señora del Carmen de Cuyo”. The southern nave of the church houses the tomb of General San Martín's daughter, Mercedes Tomasa.
