Church
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.

  • Un lugar imponente
  • 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.
  • Worth a visit, when visiting this city. Quite impressive in size and design.
  • Muy linda
  • First place you have to visit in La Plata... it is not necessary to climb up the elevator unless it's a beautiful sunny day...
