Architectural Building · Tourist Spot
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.

  • Place and view are beautiful, not far from downtown and beside the sea. Inside this place you will find a souvenir store and a restaurant; outside, one coffee shop facing the see. At night is a very charming and romantic place. You can get there walking from the Casino, bordering the shore, in about twenty minutes - great walk to take pics, and a very safe place. The only negative point: the cleaning is not too good.
