Santuario de la Virgen de Lourdes, Mendoza

4.3
#2 of 9 in Historic Sites in Mendoza
Visit Santuario de la Virgen de Lourdes, a religious site with diverse architecture and a rich history. Just a small shrine to the Virgin Mary in the early 1920s, the site grew with the addition of a small chapel in 1926. When the chapel's size was deemed insufficient for the number of pilgrims arriving at the site, the modern amphitheater-style church was built. See the difference in scale and architecture between the two main buildings, and the number of statues of the Virgin Mary that believers ask for blessings.

  • Very good place dedicated to the Virgin. The work they have done is enormous. It has a very modern church for many people in a cave as the traditional and modern style.

  • In the sanctuary is located, the original Chapel and also the large and imposing sanctuary. Enter really feels small and amazing is the ability of people who can enter. I went hiking, was part of the city tour that I hired to explore Mendoza. I liked it but I do not think that it is something indispensable.

Where to stay in Mendoza

As the center of Argentina's wine industry, Mendoza offers plenty of conventional hostel and hotel options, as well as a good selection of short-term apartments for rent. Visitors taking language courses or spending several weeks on the wine route usually snatch these early in the tourist season (which lasts from mid-December to late-February), so it's a good idea to do some research and contact the owners before you arrive. Keep in mind that some of the town's hostels only offer beds to guests signed up for their wine tours.
