Mar del Plata Cathedral, Mar del Plata

4.4
#3 of 13 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.

  • The Catedral de Mar del Plata is opposite the flower clock of Plaza San Martin in the heart of the city. Beautiful on the outside, yields good pictures in the late afternoon.

  • Beautiful cathedral, they are repairing it, so in the photos you can see the net, the vitro that has and I could not take any more photos because there was the mass. It's worth going.
