On my way back from Anguil to Buenos Aries I departed for the first time from my normal schedule and did not book my accommodation, this was a mistake as hotels were either too dodgy, booked out or my GPS lead me astray. I eventually managed to find accommodation in Lujan a city about an hour from Buenos Aries. It proved to be a real treat as my hotel was located next to a magnificent cathedral.
The cathedral is a neo-gothic Basilica built in honor of the Virgin of Lujan, the patron saint of
. Every year more than 6
million people make pilgrimages here, many walking from Argentina . Lujan is actually known as “The
Capital of the Faith” The church towers over the city landscape rising to a
height of 106 m and houses the tiny 38cm statue of the virgin. Buenos Aires
