  • Mardel Cathedral is beautiful, its facade and interior without a doubt help you may find that peace that may be needed. Very close to the Centre and with the possibilities of arriving after going to a travel. Maybe the kids can go to the plaza in front and you can insert two minutes to calm your self internal. Impeccable!

  • It is a very beautiful Cathedral. It is one of the landmarks of the city, which stands out from its surroundings by its Gothic style. It was declared as "national heritage", having opened more than 100 years ago. Despite that, she notes it is very well maintained. It is a building that is worth visiting.

  • You can not visit Mar del Plata without visiting the Cathedral which is under the patronage of Santa Cecilia. Restored, maintained, well assisted by the seminarians who, with good service, present and accompany the tourists explaining each of the attractions of the Cathedral. It's worth the time. I always travel, Mar del Plata is a beauty and it has nothing to envy to cities of the same tenor in Europe.
