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.

  • It is in the neighborhood of the same name, it is a church that is worth knowing-very well preserved. Impeccable.

  • It is a different Church, on the altar, there is a very large Virgin Mary image, and the back of the nave is painted light blue, it seems as if the Vigen had the sea as backdrop. In addition the time I visited it despite not being in mass schedule, had a very nice background music. The truth is that I loved it, they breathed peace there inside.
