Mar del Plata Cathedral, Mar del Plata

4.3
#3 of 12 in Historic Sites in Mar del Plata
An important landmark, Mar del Plata Cathedral pays tribute to the Roman Catholic faith in Argentina. Erected in 1905, the neo-gothic church is dedicated to St. Peter the Apostle and St. Cecilia. Outside, admire the tall clock tower, which houses five bells donated from a workshop in Annecy, France. Three reliefs adorn the main façade and depict scenes from Jesus’ life, including the encounter with the adulteress. As you approach the cathedral from a distance, you’ll be able to see the glazed Viennese tiles that cover the roof. Inside, appreciate the stained-glass windows, the impressive woodwork, as well as several altars dedicated to Jesus and various saints.

  • Beautiful and enormous Cathedral, located right in the Centre. Ideal to hang out and take many pictures.

  • The Church is large, with very dark interior, without a lot of statues, and has decorated with beautiful stained glass Windows. Anything beyond that.

  • An European church in the middle of Mar Del Plata. You can’t miss this spot!!
  • Impressive church
  • I am not a man of religion, less Christian, but I have to admit that the Cathedral if it is not the most beautiful building in the city is one of them. He is to visit and admire the work of Gothic art which is outside and inside each individual sculpture next to the religious mysticism that has. If I am not mistaken it is the only place where you can see a replica of a work by Miguel Ángel which is La Piedad.
