Iglesia Stella Maris, Mar del Plata

4.5
#5 of 12 in Historic Sites in Mar del Plata
Dedicated to the patron saint of fishermen and sailors, Iglesia Stella Maris gives pride of place to a mural in the main apse depicting the Virgin hovering over the sea. The church was built in 1910 in an eclectic Neo-Gothic style, but the apse holding the main altar was enlarged in 1940. The image of Our Lady, Star of the Sea--an ancient title for the Virgin Mary--dominates the bright, elegant interior, simply decorated with several sculptures of the saints and stained glass windows lining the upper gallery.

  • A place that looks like a postcard, characters and decorations from the outside invite you to delve into this temple, a pity that I have passed at night and without a camera. The place where is a quiet, so you can take a walk without any concern.
