Santuario de la Virgen de Lourdes, Mendoza

4.2
#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.

    A huge Sanctuary dedicated to the Virgin of Lourdes, that in one side conserves the original chapel. Recommended for believers.  more »

    Beautiful, immense sanctuary. It can not be known by the magnitude and the particular architecture that has.

    Beautiful place nestled in the foothills of Mendoza. The Catholic spirit feels. Many people praying. Excellent view of the city

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.
