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.

  • The grotto of our Lady of Lourdes is a classic of Mar del Plata. The Virgin Mary is very beautiful and going up and behind her is calvary. Above is the small church divided into two parts: the lower part where the faithful gather and in part a little higher is the part where before those suffering from leprosy, were located because there was an institution for your attention. There is also a small cave which is located at the top behind the Virgin. Crib which is next to the Church is beautiful and full as it grew over time, because we knew him when we were very girls when we took our parents. He has movement in its different scenes and place a tab on one side or the other. There is a Santería in which different religious objects are available.

  • 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.
