It is interesting to point out that, originally, this church was going to be built in Uruguay (Our Lady of Lourdes Church in Malvín); as the economic situation made this impossible, only the apse was built.

The Church of Our Lady of Lourdes (Spanish: Iglesia de Nuestra Señora de Lourdes) is a Roman Catholic parish church located in the neighbourhood of Malvín, Montevideo, Uruguay.The parish was established on 4 February 1934 by Archbishop Juan Francisco Aragone. The temple is dedicated to Our Lady of Lourdes.There was a project in the 1960s to build a bigger, modern church in this place. Eladio Dieste designed the reinforced ceramic building, but only the apse was built. Curiously, the project was built instead in Spain: the parish church of San Juan de Ávila, Alcalá de Henares.
