Capilla Nuestra Señora de la Asuncion in Villa La Angostura.

The Capilla Nuestra Señora de la Asuncion, nestled among the pine forest in Villa La Angostura, is well worth a visitIt is a beautiful stone chapel with stained glass windows and rustic chandeliers. The Capilla, situated on a beautiful piece of land, is a relaxed place where you can pray and meditate. I loved the smell of the Pine Forest and Cypress trees that add to the atmosphere. No wonder it is a local landmark in Villa La Angostura.

History of the Capilla Nuestra Señora.

The famous architect Bustillo built this Roman Catholic church in 1936. You will find similar architecture in Bariloche, built in the same period. One example that comes to mind is the Cerro Catedral Chapel in Bariloche.

This pretty yet simple Capilla measures 98 square meters – built from stone and wood with masonry bricks. The windows made from stained glass and the entrance door from solid wood. It is impressive.

Unfortunately, we could not go inside the Chapel or see what it looked like inside on the day when we visited. Inside the Chapel, you will find a beautiful image of the Virgin Mary, brought from Cusco, Peru.  It is approximately 200 years old.

This Chapel is very popular if you are planning a wedding and it is important to book in advance.

We walked around the premises for a while and enjoyed the peace and quiet. From there we hiked through the forest where you can hear the endless chatter of birds. It is a graceful building and I suggest a visit for an hour. It is truly worth it, so don’t miss it.

I have been fortunate to have done quite a bit of travelling over the last 10 years. By heart I am an adventurer and I love exploring new places, cultures and food. Travelling can become stressful and expensive. Over the years I have learnt to travel as cost effective as possible, simply by travelling more clever. Nelmitravel.com is a Adventure and Budget Travel site where I review Airlines, Accommodation, Transport, Restaurants and give helpful travel information.

  1. Great moment! And I like that your "moment" is of something that is a culmination of so many, many moments. Very interesting picture.

  2. Hi Martha, yes these spider webs belong to the funnel spider. What made it so interesting was the fact that it was covered in volcanic ashes. They appeared to be very dense and it was quite interesting.
