Basilica de Lujan, Lujan
(4.5/5 based on 1,400+ 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.

  • Starting from Buenos Aires is easy to get to the Basilica de Lujan public transport. In Palermo, close to the Metro station Plaza Italy passes a bus to a bus station next to the Basilica. The temple is very beautiful and imposing. On the square in which it is located is it possible to buy souvenirs and observe the local culture.

  • Lujan I followed, I travel the lands to its around and a quick turn through the Centre of the city and passed by the Basilica. On this occasion, I run a weekend in the city, which struck me as dirty, no arrangements (a hand-painting business in years), but the Church is the hallmark, what is saved. She is in perfect condition, I understand even that have made you maintenance tasks. A style is Gothic and a presence, impeccable, it is worth visiting the city by this architectural wonder.
