We had read about this gorgeous Basilica in Lujan. It was indeed truly magnificent. The town itself however was nothing special. The transportation museum across the plaza from the Basilica was quite interesting. We were not charged to enter. It is a shame it is so shabby I’m not kept up because it had some very interesting planes boats carriages and a train.

My wife and I have been in Europe and Argentina several times and when we first visited Lujan we were amazed to see what it looked like any of the European Cathedrals we have seen. The stain glasses on the church are in such a marvelous state that no European Cathedral may show any better. The neogothic style of the Church is beyond impressive. Anyone visiting Argentina cannot leave the country without going to Lujan to see this artistic wonder.

From Palermo-The Linea 57 from Plaza Italia drops right at the Basilica. There are numerous, more than one Line 57 from Plaza Italia. Board on the one that says Lujan Express or you can ask the Bus driver that you want to go to Lujan Basilica and he will direct you to the right bus. The ride is 1hr 30minutes, one way, costs 150 peso per person. You will need to board with a SUBE card, no cash.The bus runs by the hour, the bus timings are every hour, its not frequent. There are plenty of food options here. The basilica is beautiful. The trip is worthwhile.

A beautiful Basilica worth the drive. I’m amazed I missed it on my previous trip to Argentina. The town is cute and there are plenty of decent restaurants to eat near the Basilica or in town. Very tourist-y but that’s expected.

We stopped here on a business drive through to Junín so we didn’t go out of our way to see this. I was struck by the similarity to Notre Dame; especially the mini spire in the back. It didn’t have the wooden structure inside but it was a close replica of the Paris icon.
