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.

  • It's worth going through the Basilica, she is really gorgeous inside and out! We made a trip to the Zoo de Lujan and gave us the option to visit the Basilica on the way back. We did the tour with the tour company Ab (we know via instagram buenos_aires_dicas) and was super nice. The van was good and arrived on time and the Guide explained all about the Cathedral.

  • Tour the city of lujan, and in particular the basilica, full of emotion, its Gothic façade and its gargoyles give it a European; visit the crypt and see images of the Virgin Mary in the different countries is beautiful. amusement parks are part of what was the "italpark". be able to make the pilgrimage of the more emotional

  • Wonderful independent of religion. Very well cared for, with beautiful altars. pity that some sellers are right in front of the basilica that harm the picture but it is super a visit!
