  • No you can stroll along the pedestrian San Martin without a break from shopping and enter to visit the Cathedral of the city which is so beautiful.

  • One of the best examples of neo-Gothic style is in this building began to be built with donations from patrician families of Mar de Plata at the beginning of the century of the engineer and architect Luis Benoit XX.obra and completed by his son... Art and the sacred come together in the history of the temple located in the downtown of the city. The magnificent architecture can be observed very well from his forehead and side (ceilings, columns, capitals) and inside a replica of Michelangelo's Pieta, with its beautiful altar, more than one detail, eg. sculptures of angels holding the bowl of marble with holy water. Its wonderful acoustics has done great masters such as Bruno Gelber and numerous choirs concert venue. While the faithful believers enjoy with greater assiduity the building, which is still being restored (the floor with equal to the original e.g. tiles.) I think that everyone can enjoy the beauty of any construction is their creed since art is universal there is very interesting guided visits.

  • A wonderful place for prayer and meditation. Pity the difficulties to keep it in good condition. Nevertheless, it is a beautiful place.
