I had the privilege of living in La Plata back in the fall of 1980 and again about a year later. I always cherished any chance to visit this building. Back then the cathedral was lacking the two main spires. From what I've read, they had to halt construction in the 1930s when it was discovered that the building was... More

I´ve seen the construction from the freeway and I´ve thought "it must be big". Plain and simple as I explain it: I was so wrong. It´s marvelous. It´s a cathedral worth seeing for anyone who ever had the chance to go and experience such an amazing building. If you are catholic, you´ll be worthless.

built to look like a european gothic cathedral, but only completed in past few decades. it is set at the end of a huge plaza. admission to the tower includes a small "museum" below the cathedral with a nice display on the construction of the cathedral. the stained glass windows are stunning! the elevator up into one of the towers...

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.

I've grown up with this cathedral, it's only in the last ten or twenty years that the two main towers were built. Visitors to Buenos Aires rarely see this little gem. If this was Europe the place would be full of coaches carrying tourists, here there are very few. It's a wonderful building built in the late 19th early 20th... More

It is a magnificent catedral. It is unique in its class.It has three distinct features: 1. It is in front of a large plaza so you have many vantage points to look at it. 2. 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

Is a big curch, a great work of architecture. You can climbing one of its tower with elevator and see the entire city.

La Plata was founded at the ending of the nineteenth century with a new concept of city and following the renovated concepts of the Europeans capitals. Its cathedral, placed in the middle of the city followed the new gothic tendencies. It a superb example of this style. It was finished recently by the incorporation of the towers and the needles....

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).
