Is there a German influence in Mar del Plata? There appear to be a lot of timber-framed buildings, and I know Argentina was a popular destination for German immigrants in the early 20th century.
Hi Jennifat! Thanks for your kind words! In Argentina you can find the influence of all europeans styles! Hahaha! The architecture is very ecclectic!

Capricorn2000, you asked for it, you've got it!



People of Mar del Plata...

The beaches in the central area of the city are La Perla, Bristol, Varese and Playa Grande. It is between Varese and Plaza Grande that we find San Martin Park, the most beautiful in my opinion...

























Playa Grande and the port from San Martín Park (very early in the morning)

The similarities with Southern European cities are mind blowing.

Gotta second someone above who said this was the best thread of MDQ. Word!

I didn't know San Martin Park, at a quick glance it reminded me of Bariloche (yeah, I know they aren't alike at all!) but the water brought back memories.

I hope they don't pull down the traditional architecture (chateau) and replace it with tall bland square buildings. Cheers!

I can't really see that to be honest. Perhaps the northern coast of Spain, which is more 'euro-atlantic' than Mediterranean, and the people too, but otherwise the architectural appearance of this place seems more like what you'd see on the Low Countries coast (Belgium, Netherlands) and Swiss chalet, with a measure of eclectic New England architecture thrown in as well (size, form, stonework). No doubt after everything is said-and-done, the make-up of this place is uniquely Argentinian. My impression anyway.

Nice pics. The older style architecture is lovely, whilst the dense, modernist highrise intrusions (as usual) are not so pleasing imho, and I bet if we were to see older pictures of this place, it would look like an exclusive, picturesque resort, probably for the well-to-do, but nonetheless beautiful.

very nice set of pictures, Did not imagine something like this. I'm trying to figure out what other city it resembles, Valencia?
