Magnificent cathedral with beautiful artwork. Great history lessons to be had also. Don't forget to look above door on the way out to see the huge organ above. Read or do some research before going will make it a better experience too!

You can´t miss this beautiful neo gothic cathedral in the center of the city. I made a visit on my own and then returned for Sunday Mass in the evening. The Mass was beautifully celebrated and the people were most friendly.

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.
