Capilla San Rafael

While travelling in the Northwest of Argentina, I had to go across the Piedra del Molino, a pass at an altitude of 3457 m, which isn’t much. It belongs to the Valles Calchaquíes. In the barren landscape I’ve found the Capilla San Rafael, where people pray for a safe journey onwards and thank that they’ve reached the pass.

On my way to work, at the autobahn A57, I pass the German version of a Capilla San Rafael, which belongs to a network of chapels at or near the autobahn – for the same reasons as in South America.
