La Capilla de los Negros, Chascomus

Inspirock Rating:
3.3/5 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.

  • Considered by UNESCO as a member of the "slave route" of the Río de la Plata. It was built in 1862 and it was used as a place of worship by the black slaves

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

  • Beautiful and historic Chapel. Try to go with a little bit of time to tell them the history of the place.
