Places to Visit

Jose Maria Minella Stadium

The stadium was built for the 1978 World Cup. It has capacity for 35,354 spectators, although some of the capacity is standing only, like many Argentine stadiums.

Since there are no Argentine First Division teams in Mar del Plata, the stadium is sparsely used, mostly by second division and regional teams, and by first division teams for summer tournaments. The stadium also hosts festivals and concerts.

On February 24, 1993, the stadium played host to the second, and final, Intercontinental Cup for Nations (known as the Artemio Franchi Trophy) match between the then-defending South American football champions, Argentina, and reigning European champions, Denmark. The match ended 1–1 after extra time, but Argentina went on to win 5 – 4 on penalties.

La Perla Beach

It comprises several beaches connected by boardwalks built in different levels with facilities like bars, restaurants, restrooms and showers, parasol and tent hire, telephone booths, shops and lifeguard protection. Due to their urban location they are crowded and often visited by families with children because of the different recreational activities: gym classes, play areas for children, minifootball pitches, volleyball courts, bodyboarding, etc. They are extensive beaches with semi-coarse golden sand and important breakers.

Juan Carlos Castagnino Municipal Museum of Art

The museum's collections feature nearly 600 paintings, sculptures, lithographs, photographs and other works, including those by Argentine artists Antonio Berni, Alberto Bruzzone, Prilidiano Pueyrredon, Luis Seoane, Raul Soldi, and Juan Carlos Castagnino, for whom the museum was renamed in 1982, and of whom the museum houses 138 works.

Across the street from the Mar del Plata Museum of the Sea, the villa, an exhibit in itself, was declared Cultural Patrimony of the City of Mar del Plata in 1995.

St. Peter and Cecilia Cathedral

Come be a part of the Young Adult Ministry at the St. Cecilia Cathedral!  The Young Adult Ministry is for people like you - women and men in their 20s and 30s who are looking for more.
