Basilica de Lujan, Lujan

Most visitors get their first glimpse of Basilica de Lujan from the highway, before they've even reached the city called the "Capital of the Faith." Soaring to 106 m (348 ft) above the ground, the twin-spired church dwarfs all other buildings in a city of 100,000 people. Marvel at the church's elaborate neo-Gothic exterior, then be blown away by its cavernous interior. Look out for the tiny but culturally important statue of the Virgin Mary, whose significance outweighs its 38 cm (15 inch) height. More than 6 million Argentines embark on a pilgrimage to the church every year.

  • A beautiful walk, since the entrance road is beautiful... In speechless beauty actually and it is very big, I recommend if they roam to Bs As made a getaway to Luján, depart from the Center Micros and Omnibus, worthwhile!

  • It is very mobilizing. The story itself of the image of the Virgin and knowing that she was who decided to remain in that place is strong. Featuring is beautiful. Tour the Basilica makes us discover very tasteful details. Must go to the grotto of the Virgin, where images of the different names, which are patterns of different countries are exposed. Also there are the elements that Pope j. Paul II brought as a gift to the Virgin of Luján

  • It is certainly magic, is always good to visit it, not only for its architecture, because visited it a Pope, but by what it conveys the Virgin, it is always good to go
