Catedral de la Plata, La Plata
(4.7/5 based on 2,000+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Entrance to the Museum and lift departs only 50 pesos, which is cheap, is one of the things more beautiful that the city, leaving aside the religion is interesting as construction and the view from the top is pretty cute though it is not as much as one you would like to

  • There is one of the symbols of the city, to see if or when someone comes to visit La Plata! Go with the elevator up there not worth much

  • 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...
