Gruta de Lourdes, Mar del Plata

4.4
#4 of 12 in Historic Sites in Mar del Plata
Simple yet filled with character, Gruta de Lourdes features a prominent statue of the Virgin Mary, surrounded by inscriptions placed there by believers. Set back from the road in a recessed area of delicately arranged stones, the shrine is a replica of the famous Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes in France. Constructed in 1937, the site is a touching, humble tribute to a much grander work, and part of a complex of other religious sites replicated from other famous international places of worship.

  • A traditional site of the city that allows to know one of the most calm and relaxed places presenting Mar del Plata. A natural sanctuary, which warns the love that's placed in their care. There is also a beautiful work that reproduces a miniature city, with "City of Bethlehem", that fascinates children and helps the largest reunited with the beauty of the simple. The entrance to the cave is free, entry into Bethlehem City requires the payment of a bonus contribution for the home that works there same (adults $25, children $15 - chips to put in motion the city $5). Absolutely recommended to your visit. Keep in mind that if accessed by Magellan will directly enter the sanctuary, and to the city of Bethlehem you must climb a stone staircase. To avoid such ladder should enter by Bosch, so will be more directly to the miniature city.

  • I have to highlight the work of the lady who is arranging the city of Bethlehem! He did an impressive job, and continues to do so. I'm going to the Grotto since I am very small and I have to say that in 28 years never saw the city of Belen beautiful transefirir as now. Now Yes... It is worthwhile to take the kids why is beautiful! The Grotto there is nothing to say why it is always very well kept. And clean as well as the Church. It is a beautiful place to just go as a couple or as a family. For people you devoted of course. It is a place to pray and have a good time of peace.
