Estatua de Astor Piazzola, Mar del Plata

(85+ reviews on the web)
Monument
Give a nod to a major figure in tango and traditional Argentinian music at Estatua de Astor Piazzola. The statue pays tribute to the eminent tango arranger and composer Astor Piazzolla, whose instrument of choice was the bandoleon--a wind instrument that resembles an accordion. Pay special attention to the intricately carved details on the instrument itself, sculpted as if Piazzolla himself was in motion. Spend some time relaxing on the picturesque plaza or by the fountain when you go. Add Estatua de Astor Piazzola and other attractions to your Mar del Plata trip itinerary using our Mar del Plata family vacation planner.
