The Chapel of the Assumption is a bastion of religious art in the village and its denizens show it off proudly.
Regardless of believing in any religion in particular, human beings are moved whenever we visit a temple, a church or a chapel. As a place of faith, each of them contains an aura, an invisible mystery, something that makes us feel tiny. It is common for us visitors to tour around the venue in silence, appreciating the scheme, the worship areas and the works of art generally on display.
We experienced that feeling of meditation as we entered the Chapel of the Assumption of the Virgin in Villa La Angostura.
Nestled on a hill, quite visible and with a very neat garden, it is surrounded by old species and various monkey-puzzle trees that watch over its main gate.
We went up a staircase made of logs and stones until we reached the entrance. The chapel is made of stone and its pyramidal roof is covered with black Patagonian cypress tiles. It looks very solid and imposing in spite of its small size.
Recommendations: On Nahuel Huapi Avenue, which leads from El Cruce to the harbor. It lies on the right.
