  • The tank tower was rebuilt in 1943 and declared a national historic landmark Architectural be an emblem of the city. It is located in Falucho and Mendoza, in the city of Mar del Plata, on the Hill of Stella Maris, the highest in the same sector.

  • Even though he knew the structure I went particularly to remove several photos from the top of the tower. Aside from my hobby of taking photos, which is what I was doing, accompanied me a man, telling me all about the tower and very willing to tell me every detail of the structure and the history of the city. Highly recommended to visit somewhere and helpful people.

  • 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
