  • Beautiful views from the viewpoint of the four corners of this beautiful city. To spend some time and admire the beautiful landscapes of Mar del Plata from the heights.

  • The best views of Mar del Plata have from the top of the tower. Nice place to see and take pictures. Some suggestions: open in Holy week from the 15. Don't go to the morning because it will not be open. And I think it is a good attraction which perhaps wider dissemination is missing because the views really are worth.

  • The Tower of the monk is a flagship attraction of Mar del Plata, you can not leave the city if you can't even take a coffee because besides being charming, you have visited hundreds of sparrows that accompany you... If you give some crumbs... beautiful!
