Estatua de Astor Piazzola, Mar del Plata

(3.3/5 based on 80+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Opposite the Casino Central and next to the water dancers monument is Piazzola in antique bronze. It is a tango that runs a bandoneon in tribute to the great composer

  • Beautiful statue! Already is one of the emblematic to photograph places and thus pay homage to this great bandoneonist and composer born in 1921 in Mardel.
