La Plata

(4.2/5 based on 8,500+ reviews for top 20 attractions)
Things to do: historic sites, sightseeing, museums
In many ways a mini version of the national capital, attractive La Plata features a laid-back charm all its own thanks to its innovative layout. Designed specifically as the provincial capital in the late 19th century, the city's orderly grid pattern forms a perfect square bisected by wide avenues and stately boulevards. Its European-style architecture harkens back to the Belle Epoque with imposing churches, impressive parks, and grand government buildings. Sightseeing in La Plata offers numerous options: wander the city's geometric layout and discover its numerous tree-lined plazas and green spaces, explore its top-notch natural history museum, or even catch a showing in one of its many theaters. Use our Argentina trip itinerary maker to arrange the hows, wheres, and whens of your trip to La Plata.

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.
