Must see in La Plata

This unique place to visit in La Plata. Enormous cathedral built in about 100 years. There is a lift. So you can go up and observe the town from bird flight.

We walked to the Catedral later in the day and strolled around the square for a while before walking inside. Beautiful building from the outside and the interior is breathtaking. We probably spent around an hour just wandering through the place. One of the more beautiful churches I have ever seen and we were able to wander around at our... More

Two weeks ago we also visited the great cathedral in Lujan. So I was expecting another spectacular cathedral in La Plata. We were not disappointed!!! We took the elevator to the top of one of the front towers as part of the 40p museum tour. Viewing the cathedral is free. Wonderful cathedral!!!

A lovely cathedral. Surprising huge. The inside fails in comparison to the outside but is still beautiful. The park across the street is a good place to chill

Large cathedral, nice stained glasses, not dark like many other similar churches so you can appreciate the building and its architecture better. This being said, it's just a church, not much to see inside!

Huge, impressive, and pristine! Wow, mainz church that is without a doubt the most dominate figure in La Plata. The church sets in the Moreno plaza and can be seen from blocks away.

La Plata city, in general, was not exactly what I have expected but this catedral really surprised me for the better. I don't remember seeing one like this in South America, it was well worth the effort to go there from Buenos Aires. To get there from Buenos Aires, I took the bus 129 via autopista (highway) in the 9... More

No visit to La Plata is complete without a visit to the Cathedral. Locals are nicer than in Buenos Aires...and the meat is probably better.
