The Basilica of Our Lady of Luján, located in the province of Buenos Aires, Argentina, has its origins in 1685, when the place was built a chapel, which in 1730 acquired the character of the parish.
This structure was demolished in 1905, when the new basilica was already in process construction. In 1887, the foundation stone of the Basilica was placed at the site where today stands the main altar. Father Jorge Maria Salvaire was who carried forward the construction in the early years. Many priests held the position until 1935, when the work was completed.
Currently, a pilgrimage held once a year, that go to the Basilica from the neighborhood Liniers city by a 70 km walk.

Nice vivid colors! I love the effect of the shadows in the Basilica. Could've re-tilted the image a bit clockwise for more straight horizon. Anyway, I guess I missed out this place when I was in BA. It looks really nice and quite clear for a church. Nice shot.
