Santuario de la Virgen de Lourdes, Mendoza

(4.2/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
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.
