The Armenian Cathedral St. Gregory the Illuminator Cathedral of Buenos Aires, Argentina, located in the neighborhood of Palermo, has been included in the official tour program of the city, called “Knowing BA.”
The program enables tourists to tour the city’s neighborhoods, parks, forests, monuments, theaters, and to learn about the architecture, history, and cultural heritage, accompanied by guides provided by the City Government.
The organizers of “Knowing BA” wanted to include the Armenian Cathedral as a sign of the significant presence of the Armenian community in Buenos Aires.
A group of tour guides involved in the program visited the church and were welcomed by Archbishop Kissag Mouradian, Primate of the Armenian Apostolic Church for Argentina and Chile, and officials and employees of the institution to receive the necessary instruction for the tour program. They also received literature on the Armenian Church.
