We did the tour under the Catedral and also went up the Tower. What a View!! You get to learn about all the history and they also have a little gallery with other artists displaying their work.

This is quite an imposing sight on the city's landscape. Beautiful architecture. Very impressed by this Cathedral, was not expecting something like this in this area of Argentina.

Pure Gothic construction & art. It is an European cathedral implanted in Latin America. It has the particularity that the construction was not finished (without coating) since its weight was exaggerated and it is sinking year by year, to avoid aggravating this problem, it was not added more weight, which makes it a unique in sight brick gothic cathedral.

Both the outside and the inside were so architecturally well down. It is worth a visit. A walk inside will not disappoint.

This neo-gothic style cathedral is one of the emblematic monuments of the city. You can visit the interior and paying an entrance fee look at the museum and take an elevator to one of the towers. There you can have a good view of the city and the surroundings.

You have people with no money for basic necessities yet churches like this exist everywhere here. I have learned much about the church and how they spend their money by visiting many churches all over this country. I suggest visiting as many churches as possible then look around at how much they help the people.

Such a wonderful Cathedral. It is definitely worth the trip from Buenos Aires. There's a little shop outside of the church where you can buy yourself a gift to take home. Lots of beatiful windows inside. Have been to lots of churches. This one is one of the most beautiful I've ever been to!

One can relate the architecture to Spanish origin. Church is kept very nicely. One can feel the piece at god's place. Highly recommend this visit if one is interested in history.

La Plata, a very new city with a few modern buildings of merit, has its top monument in its Cathedral of Neogothic style, the one that approaches the most mankind to divinity, as its architect put it. The whole story of its construction is of interest, its foundation stone was laid in 1884 but work was interrupted for over sixty... More

The Cathedral is very, very big - but really it is just another church. Sure it is nice, but it is not worth a visit to La Plata if you don't have other things to see in the town.
