Catedral de la Plata, La Plata

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.

  • Who once should dwell in La Plata will be impressed when visiting the Cathedral by the size and architecture. The nearby city Center invites you to a walk.

  • The city of la Plata is located in the province of Buenos Aires. Are approximately 45 minutes by express bus from two stories coming out of the Square Once the bus costs 80 pesos round trip. The visit to the Cathedral is free. This is one of the most beautiful cathedrals in the world of neo-Gothic style. There's a museum attached that is paid and has an elevator to get an overview of the city with gift shop. There is also a restaurant/café.

  • Neo-Gothic architecture, the Cathedral of La Plata is a tour not to be missed for those who visit the city. Its beauty is indisputable, it seems a European cathedral. Furthermore, it is the 58th Church the world's highest. It is possible to climb to the top of the tower and take good pictures. If you're in town, don't let go.

  • Beautiful in design and decor is incredible. At night the way the lights hit the brick work shows a whole different kind of detail. Worth the walk 😀👌🏽💚🏛
  • Amazing Cathedral! I loved this place, a must seen in 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
  • I went to a concert there. Fantastic atmosphere!

Where to stay in La Plata

Many of La Plata's accommodation options lie within the geometric square of the city core, which plays home to a majority of the town's tourist attractions. The variety of mid-range hotels in the city center keeps prices reasonably low; many of these are located in historic buildings just a few blocks from central Plaza Morena and within easy walking distance to the museum of La Plata, the cathedral, and main road arteries. If you're on a tight budget, consider staying at one of the city center's many hostels; though you'll likely be sharing a room with others in bunk beds, the low prices make them economical options.
