    The place is the Church of NUESTRA SEÑORA DE LA MERCED. Who is she: Patron Saint of Tucumán and guide at the battle of Tucumán for the independence of our country

    The Basilica de La Merced is a beautiful place where you can experience the battle of Tucumán in images, its ceilings are decorated with paintings alluding to it. General Manuel Belgrano the day of battle commands his army to the Virgen de la Merced and gives it unexpected; an army of just 800 Argentine troops defeat 3000 realistic soldiers. Victory day is on September 24, 1812, day of the Virgin of mercy, and in gratitude Belgrano gives his baton, naming it Patron Saint and General of the nation.
