  • Very nice Cathedral. Clean and very well located. Unfortunately, being under a restoration process, there are some networks that do not allow to appreciate the beauty of its interior.

  • Despite being followed to sea of the silver this time I concentrated on visiting it. According to the plates has been successively restored. Currently they must be restoring it because it has a network of containment under the roof. It has 3 naves. I found the ceiling similar to the Cathedral of Notre Dame. The style is neo-Gothic. It was inaugurated in 1904 and at the entrance there is a replica of La Piedad. On one side is the Bishop of Mar del Plata. Beautiful. A walk in itself.
