  • From the top of the tower you can see a beautiful view of the city. They offer a free guided visit at different times.

  • Tank Tower, which still nowadays supplies water to the neighborhood of the Hill of Santa Cecilia; It is a tower tank/mirador, which rises to about 70 meters above the sea level. From your viewpoint, you can see still impeccable views of the city of Mar del Plata.

  • It allows you to know at Mar del Plata from above. Is a nice place to share with children. To visit it is preferable to do so with a sunny and cloudless day

  • Excellent place. Visit yesterday 25/03/16. The elevator viejisimo but still works. The stairs do not recommend upload them for people with fear of heights and claustrofobicos. From here you can see all Mar del Plata and the bottom part of the sierras
