La Capilla de los Negros, Chascomus

3.5
A small but interesting piece of history, La Capilla de los Negros represents a place of worship where the area's black population used to gather. Although the building calls itself a chapel, the Catholic Church never bestowed that title upon it, so mass is not held there. The small building served as a medical center dealing with outbreaks of cholera and yellow fever in the latter half of the 19th century. There are no professional guides here, but handouts and plaques provide some information--if you can read Spanish. La Capilla de los Negros is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Chascomus Edition.

  • There exist very few monuments to African ancestry and slavery in Argentina, but this UNESCO church from 1862 is one of them. Unique, humble and historic.

  • It is a very simple place. This care well and keeps the place like in those days. The entrance used to be free, but not is whether they currently maintain is political. Within the chapel of can see multiple objects of the immigrants.

  • Always is closed. For being a tourist attraction should be open at least on weekends, so that people (tourists) can meet. I'd love to have known, however for this inconvenience I didn't get the chance. It's with other sights of the city are closed all the time.
