Church Tourist Spot
Crane your neck back to fully appreciate the enormity of Catedral de la Plata, one of the biggest cathedrals in South America. Opened in 1902, the Neo-Gothic cathedral dominates the old town of La Plata, with its twin spires soaring 112 m (367 ft) above the ground. Step inside to appreciate the cathedral's relatively well-lit interior, as expansive windows allow light to filter into the cavernous room. Take the elevator to the top floor of the cathedral for a breathtaking view over La Plata.

  • You don't expect this kind of architecture in South America and you definitely don't expect a Cathedral with this level of detail to be made of brick. The design was incredible and the history behind the building is unique as well. The interior is just as grand as the exterior and has a holy aura to it. Definitely worth stopping in for a minimum of 30 minutes. The stain glass alone is worth it

  • Worth a visit, when visiting this city. Quite impressive in size and design.
  • Absolutely breathtaking, a must see during your travels and every weekend there are craft markets happening in the plaza opposite the Cathedral where you can experience the local cuisine.A fun place to take your kids and a nice place to relax and read a book.The Cathedral is nice and central between the commercial centre of the city and within walking distance of pretty much everything. If you're in town go check it out.
  • Neo-Gothic style.
