This temples is a historical monument and is part of  the Slave Route on the Rio de la Plata  recognized by UNESCO. Its history was born in 1862 when the colored slaves liberated by the Assembly of the Year 13, and lived in Chascomús, built the chapel in adobe, with earth floor, some windows and thatched roof supported with reeds and leather tiento. People of African descent celebrated their religiosity and carried out cultural activities to remember their places of origin.


Care in the preservation of the Chapel was carried out from generation to generation. A family cultural legacy that began, in 1862, with Luciano Alsina, one of its founders. The site was opened to the community by her granddaughter  Eloisa Alsina  and today welcomes all those who want to know the history of slaves, candombe, freedom and their mystique.
