La Catedral de Buenos Aires

It hosts Jose' de San Martin's mausoleum. The black sarcophagus is guarded by three life-size female figures that represent the three nations (Argentina, Chile and Peru) freed by El General in 1821-1822. Therefore it's a place where people from those countries - dressed up in their national costumes- often gather to pay homage to him.
