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.

  • By improving the quality of the products the offer and lowering their prices. Example is the lemonade with mint and ginger that has a lot of water.
