On this unique night, many of the city's places of worship open late, from 7pm to midnight, offering cultural activities and traditional gastronomy from different communities, all starting with a spectacular inauguration with the performance of an Argentine gospel choir at Plaza Manuela Belgrano, at the junction of Juramento and Vuelta de Obligado, at 7pm.
In this fourth edition of the event, there will be eleven guided circuits in Belgrano, Palermo, San Telmo and the "centro", run together by the city tourist board, the city's Department for Religions and the special events area. You can also visit places of worship in Parque Chacabuco and Saavedra.
Highlights include a tour of a permanent exhibition of Islamic art and culture at the Rey Fahd mosque and cultural centre in Palermo, and guided meditation, tai chi and oriental caligraphy classes at the Fo Guang Shan Buddhist monastery in Belgrano. Another highlight is the chance to visit the Libertad temple, the oldest Jewish religious site in Argentina, which will host talks from members of the Jewish community and serve traditional jewish food.
Finally, as in previous editions, the city tourist board will offer the Pope Francis bus tour, exploring places where Jorge Bergoglio grew up and worked in Buenos Aires. Inscription for the free bus tour must be completed via the online platform ba.tours.
