A must see cathedral, you can go up the left tower with a lift to see the city from above. Plus the inside construction and cellars oft he Cathedral itself. If you drop in that city, that's a must see. Then there Plaza Moreno, with the statues "pointing" at the Cathedral. Ask the local guide for that detail.

I studied near this place so I'm quite familiar with it. I always seeked its tranquility when I needed time to reflect. Although not religious I always enjoyed the place, its colorful vitreaux, designed to tell the bible to anyone who played attention, the detailed architecture of the building in it self, always transported me to a time of simplicity....

architecture is really beautiful, recommendable to go on sunny days, you will be amazed with the infrastructure, where the windows are made of a beautiful European style, external walls are decorated with stones and large sculptures inside.

Amazing building and right beside Plaza Moreno so it cannot be missed. This is definitely located in the best part of La Plata and one of the few highlights of the limited city.

Our very beautiful neo-gothic cathedral is a must-see in La Plata. Originally inspired in the Amiens- and Köln cathedrals, technical consideration resulted in a brick facade that makes it different from other Neo-Gothic cathedrals, with an air of Baltic-Gothic style. Especialy remarkable is the polished-granite floor. Its 112 mts towers make it the fifth tallest religious building in America. There... More

Impressive building. You will marvel at the stained glass and the floors. The Cathedral is one of the most beautiful buildings in Argentina. You can also visit the small Schoentatz chapel behind it, on 15th street. If you are facing the park (Plaza Moreno) you will see the City Hall opposite to you, the Normal 1 school on your left...

Magnificiant architectures. Would be amazed just by looking the structure itself. Suggested to go on sunny days so you will have a great view with nice cloud background.

The architecture is great and I plan to have a second visit just to chill in the park there. We arrived there in the afternoon, so no booth or small kiosk around. I guess they started late or in the evening. They said there's elevator inside the cathedral where we can view la plata and also the river. Since we're... More

La Plata cathedral is an impressive building from the outside and the inside. If you come to La Plata you are not allow to miss this visit! It seems that you are visiting any other similar cathedral in Europe when you are here...it reminds me the Cologne Cathedral in Germany.

It's a neo Gothic cathedral which dominates the civic Center of the city. The windows have beautiful European vitreaux, the external walls beautifully decorated in stone and inside great sculptures and wood work. It has a museum too, which is nice because it contains objects related to the construction of the church. A must.
