Mar del Plata Cathedral, Mar del Plata

4.4
#3 of 14 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.

  • An European church in the middle of Mar Del Plata. You can’t miss this spot!!
  • Impressive church
  • The best Church in which I've been all my life when you enter there felt another vibe compared to the outside. In addition to this the mass was very nice, very lovely. It made me think that he who controls the world are not politicians but God with his person, knowledge, truth, divine power and intelligence of the same. Without the world there would be no heading or be human, animals or vegetation, and protect you in all the circumstances that is what most grateful because I sometimes (i.e. not many) I am a fool and he is taking the situation (when fought me with someone (verbally or by many other circumstances) for I me calm and the next day reflected on the situation and fix the unfortunate situation. In short I was a new man out of the Church. Sorry if it's a little long but I had to say what they thought

  • A majestic Cathedral with its impressive mayoor altar, cannot be mentioned, too, the side altars and images of various saints and Marian dedications. Under the altar there is a crypt that invites meditation and contemplation. Currently are beautifying the temple but already is beautiful

  • I recommend visiting the Cathedral by its high architectural value, in all its art and much peace can be seen. There are a series of sculptures in great detail, go with a camera and your visit will be pleasant. It is very accessible being close to the commercial centre of Mar del Plata.
