Torre Tanque, Mar del Plata

Tours (offered in Spanish) involve a guided exploration of the tower and an explanation of how the water tower works, including the elevator.

    Beautiful Tower, well old construction; looks like a castle. It is located in a beautiful neighbourhood, very beautiful houses.

    This memory of another Mar del Plata is interesting. From the beautiful time. Before 1945... could be better maintained, but at least it's free
