La Capilla de los Negros, Chascomus
Categories: Landmarks, Tourist Spots
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.
