14) The Green Church, Argentina

Little information is available about this church, and yet, it is a common item on many travel blogs for Buenos Aires. Formally known as Huerto de Olives, or Garden of Olives, the parish was formed in the late 19th century, and the building was completed by the late 1930’s. No details are available regarding the breathtakingly lush, thick carpet of ivy, which nearly engulfs the entire building, and gives the church a velvety appearance. In addition to its dazzling color, the ivy has been sculpted so precisely that every detail of the underlying architectural structure is discernible. Emerging from the ivy is a metallic cross, which sits atop the arched entrance to the church. Although the history of the building is still uncertain, the Green Church is a uniquely stunning example of the union between architectural vision and horticultural skills.
