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.

  • Is open to the masses on Saturday and Sunday. Your pristine floors, its benches with upholstered pews and the beautiful High Altar with an image in marble of the Virgin Mary in its advocation of Stella Maris, with lighting that highlights the sculpture, made of this temple a very cozy place to be with God and ourselves. Don't forget to visit and make a prayer on it.
