Torre Monumental, Buenos Aires
(3.8/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
While exploring the Retiro neighborhood of Buenos Aires, pay a quick visit to Torre Monumental, a gift from British residents on the centenary of the May Revolution. Reminiscent of London's Big Ben, the clock tower was designed by British architect Ambrose Macdonald Poynter. Take a moment to admire or photograph the striking 75 m (247 ft) structure built in the Palladian style and decorated with symbols of the British Empire--thistle, shamrock, dragon, and rose. Our Buenos Aires trip itinerary planner makes visiting Torre Monumental and other Buenos Aires attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • The San Martin square, in front, is charming. But having gone to the Monumental Tower served only to find it closed and losing time, despite being a very beautiful monument.

  • It's in a great park. I never knew the history of this clock until recently. It was finished 100 years ago and given to Argentina by the British as a gift. It used to be named Torre de los Ingleses before the war in 1982.
  • Beautiful, but there are lot of similar squares and towers in BA. Nice to look at, but not worth a specific visit I think.

  • Something that you must see If you come to Buenos Aires
  • A typical Buenos Aires landmark; it frames a piece of the downtown area in a very pictorical fashion
