Templo Metodista, Buenos Aires

A Church in Buenos Aires

As we walked down Avenida Rivadavia in the Argentine capital of Buenos Aires this was the first inkling that there was an interesting building ahead. Or should I say another interesting building because BA is chock-a-block with interesting buildings especially from the Art Nouveau and Art Deco eras.

As we drew level, we could see it was a church, the Templo Metodista as it turns out.

The church dates from around 1930 and was designed by Phillip Massey.
