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.

  • A SHOCKING building!!! , in the purest European style. Do not forget to visit the underground, where you can see the support structures of the edificacicaciòn and also has a small museum and an elevator to appreciate the city.

  • It s very good
  • Beautiful church..
  • Great architecture
  • The best and wonderfullest gothic church outside of Europe!
  • 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
