To me, each place of worship is God's portrait. This Cathedral surpasses other places of worship in Mar del Plata. It is a congolomerate or fusion of exquisite art, sculpture and architecture.

Love walking from the beach to the cathedral and once there sitting on the steps and enjoying the majesty of such an important landmark. the plaza in front of the cathedral is also not to be missed.

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.

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!
