Locals are proud of their church, and they have every right to be. Tucked away in the north of Pocitos, in front of a small square, the first stone of Parroquia San Juan Bautista was laid in 1899, yet numerous delays and alterations in design meant it was not until the late 1920s that it was finally finished. The tall tower has several attractive details, and the front features a carving of Christ. You can visit the inside during mass.
