Must see · Landmark · Tourist Spot
See a panoramic view of Mar del Plata from above at Torre Tanque. Constructed out of stone, the tower was once the tallest building on the island. Ride a water-powered elevator to a viewing platform at the top, where you can snap postcard-perfect photos of the surrounding landscape. Tours (offered in Spanish) involve a guided exploration of the tower and an explanation of how the water tower works, including the elevator. Torre Tanque is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , online itinerary creator Edition.
