Iglesia San Ponciano, La Plata
(4.2/5 based on 80 reviews on the web)
Step inside Iglesia San Ponciano for some quiet reflection inside a grand 19th-century Catholic church. As opposed to the classic Roman basilica style, this structure features an eclectic mix of architecture drawing from a number of influences, predominantly Gothic. In 1997 Pope John Paul II awarded it the title of basilica. Take in the ornate stylings of the carvings and central spire. The main plaza and the local government building lie within a stone's throw, so consider combining your visit with other nearby attractions.

  • The Basilica of San Ponciano is located in the city of la Plata, in the 48th Street between 5 and diagonal 80.Es the oldest temple in the city. Excellent example of Baroque adapted to the local style, is currently in repair, due to forgetfulness and abandonment which has suffered for years. His visit is recommended. Beautiful building, surprising. The chimes ring every half hour. Not to be missed, very picturesque place suitable to achieve a spiritual and religious feeling. In my opinion, it is necessary to take the time to look at everything in detail, especially its ceiling and stained glass.

  • He was the first Catholic Church of the ejido of the city (because before she was born San Benjamin in Los Hornos). Neo-Gothic temple that has suffered some restorations. He is currently in a restoration, as major surgery to put in value. Good place to visit and take pictures
