Chacras de Coria
In Chacras de Coria there is a unique feeling; a strange combination of nature and familiarity, of art and culture and of the typical scenery… a true land of contrast.This picturesque villa is only 15 km away from the capital city of Mendoza, a meeting point for the wine routes and the most original gastronomic offers.
Its name takes us back to the first ranch settled in the area, whose owner – Don Bohorquez de Coria – established the first ranches. Since then, the locals baptized this area as “las Chacras de Coria” or “Coria´s ranches”.
It is renowned for its particular microclimate and seduces with its cool air, the green colours, the mountains and vineyards.
Every Sunday afternoon you can find crafts and antiques on the town square, also musicians and puppeteers every week, attractive for our visitors.
“Chacras de Coria is a mixture of nature and familiarity, art and culture …”
The town church, “Nuestra Señora del Perpetuo Socorro” is built in a neo-colonial style. The icons on the main altar are carved in stone and the ceilings are built with poplar wood in a traditional way for Mendoza.
It is characteristic to see the streets lined by trees and beautiful houses, also the wineries and mountains. A typical postcard of Mendoza that opens its doors to anyone who wants to feel at home.
