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.

  • Majestic structure, impacts your Gothic style on the outside and the brightness of its stained glass windows inside. The ascent to the viewpoints located in one of the towers, offers panoramic views not to be missed. It's worth the time.

  • The Cathedral of La Plata is really more beautiful than I imagined me. Really different to the other cathedrals in the country.

  • Anyone who comes to visit La Plata can't leave without knowing this majestic structure. Excellent. Super spacious. Beautiful. And upload and view the entire city from one of its peaks is incomparable

  • The best and wonderfullest gothic church outside of Europe!
  • Beautiful and enigmatic architecture. Totally recommended to all
  • 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
  • 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
