La Capilla de los Negros, Chascomus

3.4
#1 of 11 in Things to do in Chascomus
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.

    Walking through the Park near the lagoon, has easy access. It gives curiosity. From 1861 the Black Freedmen who lived in Chascomus, pcia de Bs As, presented as the Invensa Brown Bayonbe brotherhood, requested a land to erect a "room of souls and other objects essential for its festive joys!. In 1862 rose the present building at ground floor, some windows, adobe and thatched. Not only for religious ceremonies but for dancing candombe, preparing clothing for Carnival, is a national historic landmark since 1962 and memory (UNESCO) site from 2010.

    I believe that the timetable is too restricted considering that I visited in winter holiday period... like so many other tourists should return me without having known

    I always come back. It is simple, austere. Submixer a special energy. Although I think that it is not for everyone.

    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.
