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

I reckon that in terms of church architecture, I must only now visit the ones in Europe, or perhaps in Moscow, because in Latin America i saw the best.
