Argentina - Santuario Santo Rey Baltazar Familia Acebey (Saint King Balthazar Sanctuary - Acebey Family)

A characteristic of the cult to Saint Balthazar is that, unlike other cults of the Argentinean popular Catholicism, it does not have a central chapel, so that each is autarchic in many aspects regarding their devotion and celebrations, although they maintain a certain cohesion of the group in basic aspects, like the use of the colors red and yellow in the emblems of the cult.
