Gruta de Lourdes, Mar del Plata

4.3
#4 of 14 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.
