La Capilla de los Negros, Chascomus

(3.3/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
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 online itinerary creator, Chascomus Edition.

  • Could visit it from outside, since only opens during the end of week. Has a part essential of it history argentina and by times forgotten, it participation active in the trade Atlantic of slaves and the strategies of survival of their descendants. Its preservation is of utmost importance.

  • 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.
  • somewhat hidden and des neat

  • Did not enter never more... Ugly place, and a very heavy atmosphere. I do not recommend it.

  • Beautiful, restored. It gives account of the tradition of Afro-descendants of our Argentina (so abused).

  • It is a gloomy place. The only information that you provide here is the year in which it was founded.
