Iglesia Stella Maris, Mar del Plata

(4.4/5 based on 400+ 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.

  • It is an ancient Church of the city in the process of restoration, not be the because but just to enter a difficult to describe peace feels. It is good for the soul to leave awhile the madness of this city and know this church. And if you take a picture of the Virgin, without flash, you will notice an aura around it that you cannot see with the naked eye
