Notes on the Geography of Argentina: From Boca to the Torre: Photo 45
The Torre Monumental, until the Falklands War the Torre de los Ingleses, was built as yet another monument to Argentina's Independence. Inaugurated in 1916, the architect was Sir Ambrose Macdonald Poynter, whose name alone was credential enough. The style is said to come from the late 16th century, when Buenos Aires was founded. Once, visitors could ascend to the top for a view; no more. Instead, we have a fine protective fence.
