Iglesia San Ponciano, La Plata

(4.1/5 based on 85+ 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.

  • Actually the building is an architectural Marvel! The exterior is impressive! And its interior exudes peace! It is a spiritual pleasure to stay there, bringing thanks to the Lord! Recommend that you take a moment and come enjoy beautiful feelings of calm and at the same time high-energy!

  • In a constant restoration because the time you has last for over, but certainly is a place recommended to visit. Personally not like visiting an overloaded Temple of images, so it is not a place to which would return, but is certainly a place with a particular charm.

  • Excellent example of Baroque adapted to the local style, unfortunately at this time in service, due to forgetfulness and abandonment which has suffered for years, recommended his visit!
