La Capilla de los Negros, Chascomus
(3.2/5 based on 160+ 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.

  • Gave me a real fear entering the place by the little light, but after a few minutes you loads of history.

  • Is a chapel full of history, located a mile lagoon, very original, entering it seems that one is transported in time, well preserved, are excited, missed if one passes through Chascomús

  • 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.
