Argentina

Buenos Aires. Faith for Fun

Where religion is (also) entertainment

Tierra Santa is a theme park not far from downtown Buenos Aires. A family favorite, it is unique in the world: its’ theme is faith. For 30 pesos, you get to live a comprehensive experience that includes assisting to the Creation, witnessing the Apostles sharing the Last Supper with the Messiah, praying at a real scale reproduction of Jerusalem’s Wailing Wall and watching five daily resurrections of a giant Jesus Christ ascending to the sky.
And that’s just a fraction of Tierra Santa’s wide range of attractions, in front of which Argentinians behave as if they were in an actual holy site, lighting candles and praying on their knees.
