BUENOS AIRES (Public Radio of Armenia) — The Armenian St. Gregory the Illuminator Cathedral, located in Palermo, Buenos Aires has been included in the official tour program of the city titled “Knowing BA.”

The program enables tourists to tour the city’s neighborhoods, parks, forests, monuments, theaters, to learn about the architecture, history, cultural heritage, accompanied by guides provided by the City Government.

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 employees of the institution in order to receive the necessary instruction for the tour program. They also received literature on the Armenian Church.

    Can anyone help me? I will be traveling from the US toArgentina this week and it has always been my dream to find the part of my family who immigrated to Buenos Aires after the Genocide. Due to visa restrictions my uncle,Simon Genovian
    was left behind in Turkey and some wonderful folks in the refugee camp took him to Buenos Aires. I am certain that he is deceased however I understand that he has two children named George and Susan Genovian who are in the 60-70 year old range.I would love to meet them. Please help me if you are able.
    With much thanks,
    Alicia
