La Virgen de Lourdes

While a visit to the city has many charms, my primary reason for going to Mendoza was to attend another service at the Church of the Virgin of Lourdes. The architecture is inspiring and, even to my English-only ears, the priest gives a sermon that leaves one feeling genuinely cared about. From Eugenia we learned that the older church on the right, where people make pilgrimage to ask for miracles, is the oldest in the province of Mendoza. The new church is the largest in Argentina. It seats thousands, although the two services on Sunday attract only a (still impressive given its remoteness) few hundred each.
