Mar del Plata Cathedral, Mar del Plata
(4.3/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Whenever I visit Mar del Plata, I'm going to the Cathedral, not only because I was baptized there. but because architecture is very beautiful. very good option is take it after walking through the pedestrian, is the end. and it's a forced walk.

  • The Cathedral is impressive, an amazing building and inside, even when there are many people, is a cozy and quiet place.

  • Beautiful architecture, impossible stop visiting it during a stay in the seaside resort. Something peculiar is that during the mass in the street can be heard since it has speakers so that passers-by can hear mass
