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 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.

    You can admire a beautiful fresco in the atrium. Very beautiful place, nestled in a very representative of the city area, can take advantage and take a walk in the surrounding area

    It is located in the Stella Maris district near the tank Tower and one of the highest hills in the city. It has an interesting architecture. When we visited it were performing tasks of restoration and maintenance. Bella.
