Iglesia Stella Maris, Mar del Plata

(400+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site
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 visit to Iglesia Stella Maris represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Mar del Plata itinerary builder to plot your vacation.

  • The Church Stella Maris is located two blocks from the water tower; Therefore you can take advantage of the time by visiting both places.

  • The altar with the image of the Virgin is very beautiful. the floors are particularly beautiful and inside a very nice music that invites you to pray and find a moment of peace and prayer

  • This church is very cute! the altar has a statue of the Virgin as star of the Sea (Stella Maris) surrounded by a sky that highlights it. Is very simply decorated and I think that that is the charm. The architecture also is very particular and pleasant. It is located in a residential and quiet area. I love whenever I visit it!
