Iglesia San Ponciano, La Plata

4.2
#3 of 7 in Historic Sites in La Plata
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.

  • Go, go, go. Its eclectic style can be rare sight, especially the façade that is not of the best, with some Gothic neo predominant notes and a bit of neoclassicism, but enter and look inside is to immerse yourself in another dimension-flavored dark green and incense. You disconnect from reality. It is not a very big place, in fact it is a very small church, but see every detail of the place, as you leave that in the photo, is priceless. Would it again? Clear that if, whenever he passed that street entered a timeless experience. I recommend it? Of course. And the best, it's free. Perhaps a theme of interior lighting restoration would not wrong, fall lighting that do him justice, who is not shy but not abused.
