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.

  • 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.
