"Torre de los Ingleses" English Tower - Torre de Los Ingleses Tip by MDC6


his tower was a gift from the English to Argentina, hence the name "Torre de los Ingleses." During the Falklands/Malvinas War with the United Kingdom, the tower's name was changed to "Torre Monumental," but no one actually calls it that. You can take an elevator to the top, and there are other floors you can stop on with information about the tower. Once at the top, you're provided with a great 360-degree view of the city and the Río de la Plata.

In fact, if you stick to the city center, you may never even realize that Buenos Aires is located on one of the widest rivers in the world. Not much of the city is oriented toward the river, and the tower is a great place to get a good look at it. The picture here is of the Río de la Plata.
