Iglesia Stella Maris, Mar del Plata

(4.3/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
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 is very simple and warm. in the altar there is a painting of the sea and an image of the Virgin front. behind the Virgin there is a light that creates the feeling of a sunrise. It's really beautiful.
