Trip Planner: South America / Argentina / Central Argentina / Province of Buenos Aires / Mar del Plata / Torreon del Monje
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. Put Torreon del Monje into our Mar del Plata sightseeing planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Mar del Plata.

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.
Beautiful place to have breakfast looking to the sea....
