  • For Catholics, and for those who is not, a place that has a building with significant history. In full remodeling. Spaces and images that move. In the heart of Mar del Plata, on a pedestrian street. A few meters from another historic building, the municipality of General Pueyrredón.

  • I especially recommend the guided tour organized by the Cathedral Church. The lady who does it knows a lot about the history of the Cathedral and the city. Cultural visit very interesting and free! You can leave a collaboration for the restoration being carried out but it is not obligatory.
