La Capilla de los Negros, Chascomus

(3.3/5 based on 190+ 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.

  • Don't miss the opportunity to visit it. It is part of the city, beautiful place, with its old floor of Earth and the mixture of altars, Christians and pagans. Pure history.

  • Wednesday, April 5-we're standing in front of this tiny Chapel of Negri, of course closed. Aren't even exposed hours of operation and a bystander of the place tells us that open only on Saturdays and Sundays. What is being done to develop tourism!!! We just have to take pictures of the exterior and imagine.

  • A place that envelops you in religious mystery. Ideal for original photos and marvel at the exotic simplicity-

  • 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.
