La Plata, a very new city with a few modern buildings of merit, has its top monument in its Cathedral of Neogothic style, the one that approaches the most mankind to divinity, as its architect put it. The whole story of its construction is of interest, its foundation stone was laid in 1884 but work was interrupted for over sixty... More

The Cathedral is very, very big - but really it is just another church. Sure it is nice, but it is not worth a visit to La Plata if you don't have other things to see in the town.

Impressive cathedral in the middle of the capital of Buenos Aires Province , La Plata. We particularly enjoy the visit to the museum were you can ride an elevator that takes you to the top of one of it's towers were you get a 360 view of the city from. Around 60 meters high. At the end of the visit... More

A must see cathedral, you can go up the left tower with a lift to see the city from above. Plus the inside construction and cellars oft he Cathedral itself. If you drop in that city, that's a must see. Then there Plaza Moreno, with the statues "pointing" at the Cathedral. Ask the local guide for that detail.

I studied near this place so I'm quite familiar with it. I always seeked its tranquility when I needed time to reflect. Although not religious I always enjoyed the place, its colorful vitreaux, designed to tell the bible to anyone who played attention, the detailed architecture of the building in it self, always transported me to a time of simplicity....

architecture is really beautiful, recommendable to go on sunny days, you will be amazed with the infrastructure, where the windows are made of a beautiful European style, external walls are decorated with stones and large sculptures inside.

Amazing building and right beside Plaza Moreno so it cannot be missed. This is definitely located in the best part of La Plata and one of the few highlights of the limited city.

Our very beautiful neo-gothic cathedral is a must-see in La Plata. Originally inspired in the Amiens- and Köln cathedrals, technical consideration resulted in a brick facade that makes it different from other Neo-Gothic cathedrals, with an air of Baltic-Gothic style. Especialy remarkable is the polished-granite floor. Its 112 mts towers make it the fifth tallest religious building in America. There... More

Impressive building. You will marvel at the stained glass and the floors. The Cathedral is one of the most beautiful buildings in Argentina. You can also visit the small Schoentatz chapel behind it, on 15th street. If you are facing the park (Plaza Moreno) you will see the City Hall opposite to you, the Normal 1 school on your left...
