Buenos Aires - Recoleta: Basílica Nuestra Señora del Pilar - Retablo Mayor التي كتبها wallyg
El Retablo Mayor (the Main Altar) was carved from wood by Domingo Mendizábal, Ignacio de Arregui and Miguel Careaga in 1730. In the center niche is a polychrome carving of the la Virgen del Pilar. At her feet is an image of Santiago. To her left (looking at the altar) is an image of Santo Domingo Guzmán, and to her right is
San Francisco De Asís--both made from a Buenos Aires sculptor, although the heads are from Peru. At the top of the altar are, on the left, San Pascual Bailón, and on the right, San Pedro Regalado.
La Basílica Nuestra Señora del Pilar (Basilica of Our Lady of the Pillar) at Junín 1904, was inaugurated in 1732, making it the second-oldest church in Buenos Aires, as part of a convent belonging to Padres Recoletos. The church owes its name to the patron saint of the city of Zaragoza in Spain, the hometown of Juan de Narbona who financed the construction starting in 1716. Construction was started by Italian Jesuit architect Andrés Bianchi and it was completed by Juan Bautista Premoli.
The order of the Recoletos was expelled in 1822 by Governor Martin Rodriguez, and after their property was expropriated, the convent became a mendicant's home in 1934 and then a retirement home. It returned to ecclesiastical use opening as a parish church in 1829, and was declared a Basilica in 1936 by Pope Pio XI.
The pristine white unadorned exterior is a modern alteration. The colonial-style building was originally a sun yellow. Inside, the basilica fetures outstanding Spanish colonial artwork and six German Baroque-style altars, the center one of which is overlaid with Peruvian engraved silver and features an image of the Virgen del Pilar.
Los Claustros Historicos Del Pilar (The Cloisters), which date from 1716 and still have their original floors and some fixtures, was opened to the public in 1997 as Museo de los Claustros del Pilar. The 3-floor museum features religious artifacts and photographs documenting Recoleta's evolution.
