Gruta de Lourdes, Mar del Plata

(4.4/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Beyond religious beliefs, is a visit to ever be done in this city. Replica of the grotto of Lourdes French, is near the Harbour and a few minutes enough to visit.

  • The Grotto is a place where one finds much peace. It is the beautiful image of the Virgin and your feet can be one charged bottles with water coming down from the Grotto. Many people will ask the Virgin and to keep promises. There is also a chapel, where one can attend mass. I try to go every month with my family to thank the Virgin.
