“Worth a visit”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

It is a magnificent catedral. It is unique in its class.It has three distinct features:

1. It is in front of a large plaza so you have many vantage points to look at it.

2. Has a square plant rather than the traditional rectangular plant.

3. It is elevated from the ground.

The interior is astonishing.

It doesn´t belong to the Church but to the Province of Buenos Aires.

“Neogothic in the middle of a nineteenth century city”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

La Plata was founded at the ending of the nineteenth century with a new concept of city and following the renovated concepts of the Europeans capitals.
Its cathedral, placed in the middle of the city followed the new gothic tendencies. It a superb example of this style. It was finished recently by the incorporation of the towers and the needles. From the top of it you may seee a wonderful sight of the city.

“I feel like I'm in Europe!”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

What a grand cathedral with an impressive entrance off of a nice public plaza which adds to the grandness of it all. Really enjoyed stumbling around and an easy trip from buenos aires (45 minutes by car without traffic).
