Visiting the Catedral doesn't need long, but the trip up the tower is definitely worth it! A great view and plenty of interesting history in the displays.

Has a square plant rather than the traditional rectangular plant. 3. It is elevated from the ground. The interior is astonishing. It doesn´t belong to... More

What a grand cathedral with an impressive entrance off of a nice public plaza which adds to the grandness of it all. Really enjoyed stumbling around and an easy trip from buenos aires (45 minutes by car without traffic).

There is not much to see in La Plata except for all the parks, but it is a very pretty city and it is much more relaxed than BA. The Cathedral is really neat with a museum below that has some history and an elevator that will take you to the top of one of the towers. It is definitely... More

This Neogothic Cathedral is located in the center of the city, facing the central square and Plaza Moreno. There is a central building and eight towers of different heights, the tallest tower on the right reaches a height of 112 m. The very nice museum in the basement gives an insight into its construction, and you can take the elevator... More
