Torreon del Monje, Mar del Plata

(3.8/5 based on 1,500+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Beautiful place, very well preserved. Deserves the penalty through it. It has within it an interesting craft fair, a confectionery - restaurant and a terrace for contemplating the sea.
