Pasaje Dardo Rocha, La Plata

Walk through what was once a train station that now serves as the cultural center of the city when you visit Pasaje Dardo Rocha. This monumental building was erected as the original train station for La Plata, and the architecture of the building stuns visitors with its size and Renaissance style. Before becoming the cultural center, the attraction served as a post office. Today the site hosts exhibitions, fairs, conventions, and more. While there, and be sure to check out the glass ceiling on the second floor. Also be sure to check online before you head out, as the building often holds special events.

Where to stay in La Plata

Many of La Plata's accommodation options lie within the geometric square of the city core, which plays home to a majority of the town's tourist attractions. The variety of mid-range hotels in the city center keeps prices reasonably low; many of these are located in historic buildings just a few blocks from central Plaza Morena and within easy walking distance to the museum of La Plata, the cathedral, and main road arteries. If you're on a tight budget, consider staying at one of the city center's many hostels; though you'll likely be sharing a room with others in bunk beds, the low prices make them economical options.
