Basilica de Lujan, Lujan

(4.5/5 based on 1,500+ reviews on the web)
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. Plan to see Basilica de Lujan and other attractions that appeal to you using our Lujan tourist route planner.

  • The history of this Cathedral and of the image of the Virgin that here is worshipped, is interesting and reflects a religiosity popular that characterized the people Argentine. The neo-Gothic style of the temple is beautiful although it will get attention rather than nothing for its dimensions and for the care of the details. To the inside nothing special to note. It is worthwhile in days of lower turnout. You can walk around the area and make a picnic on the banks of the river Lujan, in the green. Sometimes the many grills in the area do not offer a meat at the height of the Argentine asado (should go to places known for their quality).

  • Lujan is one of my favorite places. Since the guy we were going with the whole family to spend the day. Go to the basilica and then to play to the side of the road when is came out of the route. Now of big I am going with my family. Obviously always entering the Basilica in search of peace, but also to see this work of art. A walk by the River, games for the kids or simply walk through the area. At the only time that would not go to Lujan is in holidays that is filled with people and it is impossible to be there and also exit or transit route. You forgot the very good restaurants in the area. They generally have very good price.
