TORN THREAD: ALTAR FOR A NON-CONSECRATED CHAPEL

Image  THE VENUE: The Chapel for Susana Soca in the town of Soca, Department of Canelones, Uruguay.

Lost somewhere in the countryside, almost unknown, without being consecrated either by the Catholic Church or as patrimony, lies one of the jewels of Uruguay: the tiny chapel built by Catalan urbanist and architect, Antoni Bonet in memory of writer Susana Soca (1906-1959), who died in an accident at the age of 53, and never married.

The chapel was inaugurated in the late 1960’s and was abandoned for decades.   Image
