La Plata is the perfect example of well-designed and modern city planning from the 19th century. Enjoy a full day exploring the architecture, culture, religion, and natural science of the city.
As we explore the city, you will get to see the famous Neo-Gothic Cathedral of La Plata, which is the largest church in Argentina. Here will be several stops throughout the day, among them will be the Argentine Theatre and the Astronomical Observatory.
