Torreon del Monje, Mar del Plata
Categories: Architectural Buildings, Tourist Spots
Feel like a medieval king or queen as you survey the ocean from atop a turret at Torreon del Monje. Despite its medieval style, the distinctive building was only constructed in 1904 as an attraction for the well-off Argentine tourists who visited the beach resort of Mar del Plata. Nowadays the "Tower of the Monk" is best known as a fine-dining restaurant. Pop in during your walk for some afternoon refreshments, or visit after sundown for an exquisite evening meal. Take a look at our Mar del Plata trip itinerary maker to schedule your visit to Torreon del Monje and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

It represents the old Mar del Plata of the 20's, which is not. Your entry hall, converted into bar, has an air of those times. The "terrace", which was a shooting range the Dove covered with grass, now seems a helipad, covered tables, chairs and ropes that limit the displacement. This last place you can see views of the city not possible in other parts of the coast. Finally, your visit is an original program that can reward with a morning coffee or a you in the afternoon.show original
