The Chapel

The houses of the colonial estancias had a chapel generally next to the building, at the end of the verandah.

In Estancia San Agustín the chapel is separated from the house, which shows how important it was in the village.

It is 6 m. wide and 20 m. long and it has its own vestry. Among other images, there is a life-size Christ (1.73 m.) dating from the 17th century and an 18th-century image of Saint Agustín which has been venerated by the people of the village for more than 200 years.
