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.

    I come to the grotto of Lourdes, several times a year, to pray, pray for health, work and love in harmony for my family, friends and for me, as well as to thank for everything I have. It is a very beautiful place and inspires much peace

    It is wonderful to be there, if only the Grotto is admirable, but recommend strolling the promenade which is around, I found a chapel quite particular and I think not much is known of her. Replicas of the cities of Bethlehem and Jerusalem are also worth a visit!
