It's an amazing flower constructed by means of airplane materials. It guarantees you nice shots. Some touristic guides will tell you it opens during the day, and closes at night, but do not expect that; I was told by natives that the mechanism doesn't work for years. I do recommend for photos!

I was told that the open/close mechanism hasn't worked for years. It's a nice sculpture, but it's the type of place to visit on the way to something else. I wouldn't make a special trip.

Take some fun picture. One of the most lovely areas to visit when in Buenos Aires If you are walking by the Palermo Gardens, don´t miss "Paseo del Rosedal" (Roses promenade).

To many it may just seem like a statue or a simple flower, but it is a beautiful work of art and a beautiful viewfurthermore, is route airplanes, which gives beautiful pictures. Has no bathroom or place to eat, so I recommend you to take something to drink, have easy access.

You'll see this beauty while driving around BA. Take a few fun pics here, but that's really about it.

We visited this as part of a day out from the Zoo, its a nice walk with a good sourounding area with interesting buildings. Some say the park is tired? We found it plesent and relaxed in the sunshine looking St the giant flower, we was told by a local it has continued mechanism problems and the cost to repair... More

Breathtaking - I love how it opens and closes!! A great photo opportunity. I have been told that recently the flower no longer opens and closes due to technical errors but hopefully that will be rectified soon.

I really like this Hugh monument and was utterly amazed when I discovered it open and closes throughout the day and faces the direction of the sun. Me and my wife took some great selfies with this flower and the green park around it makes it a must when visiting BA.

I have been to this beautiful monument a couple of times. Sadly the mechanism is seldom working and at times the surrounding park is neglected. However, it does make a beautiful photo and the area is very nice to walk in. It is walking distance from the la Recoleta cemetery and Mueseo de Bellas Artes. There are also impressive buildings...

Set in nice park this metal flower is worth a photo. It used to open at night but the mechanism is broken and our guide said it is too expensive to fix. Shame
