Monumento a la Bandera (Flag Monument), Rosario

4.7
Erected in memory of Manuel Belgrano, the man who created Argentina's flag, Monumento a la Bandera (Flag Monument) cuts a striking figure in Rosario's skyline. Consisting of a 70 m (230 ft) tower, a courtyard, and column-style monument, the complex celebrates Argentinean independence, obtained in the early 19th century. Make sure you check out the small underground museum, which explains the flag's history and provides other information about Latin American countries.

    the monument to the flag, is close to the city and the Basilica of our Lady of the Rosary, in full Plaza on March 25. Is a place fantástico...com a very beautiful architecture and sculptures that show the importance of freedom. Is a torch lit all the time, but now in October, they are restoring the monument and I couldn't go up (because it has an elevator). But still, it was worth a visit, and then walk through the Paraná River. A great ride!!

    Landmark in Rosario where every june 20th, the countrys presidente holds a ceremony in honour to the argentine national flag (light blue and white with a sun face in its middle). Espacious place with 24hs acces to walk or seat and enjoy the quietness and view of sorroundings.

Where to stay in Rosario

Crowding around the city center, most accommodations in Rosario sit within a few minutes' walk of the Parana River's west bank. Budget options remain plentiful in the central districts, with an array of hostels catering to Rosario's younger visitors. Boutique hotels offer something for mid-range travelers, while luxury accommodations are relatively rare. If you want something quieter, consider the neighborhood of Del Abasto, south of the city center.
