Architectural Building
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.
