Impressions from La Plata

La Plata (Spanish for "the silver") lies approximately 50 kilometers south-east of Buenos Aires and is the capitol of the province Buenos Aires. It's the home of two important football clubs, Estudiantes de La Plata and Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata, and is, in contrast to the capitol of the country, very relaxed and chilled out. The city follows a strict checkerboard pattern and was designed by Pedro Benoit. It can be reached easily by train or bus from BA and offers various museums, caf├ęs, restaurants and the tallest cathedral in South America, the Catedral de La Plata.
