Extremely beautiful Cathedral, so very ornate without being garish. Really worth a visit. Also houses the tomb of General Jose de San Martin who was the prime leader in Argentina’s successful struggle for independence from Spain in the 19th Century.

One of the most typical and beautiful historic places of the great city of Mar del Plata. Its vitreau and gorgeous arquitecture style made this one of the most important Cathedrals in the country.

Mar del Plata's cathedral may not be the best by international standards but it is worth visiting. Much bigger than the typical town church, in a gothic style.

Lovely Gothic style cathedral with wonderful stained glass. Unlike Italian churches the art is rather limited but overall it is beautiful.

A typical hometown cathedral, provintial, but sympathetic. Pay attention to the flower callendar in front of this monument. Never have seen such one.

It's a beautiful construction, but also very common. There are many better churches in Argentina, it's good only if you are tired of beaches!
