Gruta de Lourdes, Mar del Plata

(600+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site Tourist Spot
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.

  • Visit Holy Mary in Mar del Plata, it´s a copy of Lourdes in France. I love this place, pray and relax.  more »
  • the place seems stopped in time. I went for the first time at age 5 and last, last year already with 41 years was like see the same place without a stone is touched. The city of Bethlehem, which has all the model with phones that work with chips, was exactly the same that 37 years ago, preserved, but equally.

  • cute place, interesting, to be a religious place is expensive, now charge you input on the promenade where are models which is the city of Bethlehem that moves and once inside you have to pay the tab so that you start to move, where comes the "Holy" water which swear that it comes from a natural water shed as 50 years ago that is dry (this I the told my grandmother who is dry, shed not my grandmother) is not more than a drained I connect any nun and that every day is open religiously. but in General a picturesque walk.
