Basilica de Lujan, Lujan

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.

  • A classic in Luján, good cuisine, classic and hearty dishes, variety of wines and desserts. Central and warm. You can always go back, and except for some dishes that you don't like personally the rest are allowed to eat. Recommended

  • No words to describe, just visiting! Very beautiful and imposing, on the outside and inside. In addition to having nearby stalls with local handicrafts, good for little gifts. Very worth the visit!!
