Buenos Aires, Argentina
Basilica of Our Lady of Lujan
This Argentinian basilica is home to a famous icon and 15 bells, each with a different name and motto.
Built in the early 1700s, Citizen’s Hall Church, otherwise known as Bürgersaalkirche, is a Jesuit building that doesn’t quite appear to be a church from its facade. The building was anointed as a house of worship almost a century after being built, and inside there is not one, but TWO churches – an upper and lower. Originally a printing center for the congregation, the lower church is a bit more simple than its upper church counterpart which remains decked out with intricate Baroque detailing and a ceiling fresco.
