Holy Mary Shrine in Puerto Madero, Buenos Aires, Argentina

Few remnants of the old dockyards have gone unaltered in Puerto Madero. A charming exception is this humble shrine of Holly Mary holding the Infant Jesus. It was likely a place of reverence and prayer for departing seamen and those who had arrived safely in Buenos Aires. A version of the Virgin Mary named Stella Maris (Star of the Sea) is the patron saint of the Argentine Coast Guard.
