Great view of the city and the people working here is the kindest. There's an elevator to go up to the top of the tower. I recommend to use the stairs to go down, you will have a better view of the inside of the tower plus you will go trough the water tank.

Free lift to the top to see the best city views. The lift is water powered and the tours gives a great explanation of how the system works. Free to visit and a very short walk from the beach. Take the 30 minutes to do it. The view from up top is great.

Walking on my way to Guemes St I could not help but notice this commanding water tower. It is a glorious architectural pile. It is open to visitors and I was treated to a private and most informative tour. The guide reminded me how clean the water in Mar de Plata is so no more bottled water for me while... More

The best way to have a view of Mar del Plata from the air for free. The neighbourhood and the tower are also beautiful and visiting this tower is really worth. After Bristol beach, I think this is the second most important place to visit in Mar del Plata.

In the past, it was the tallest building on MdP. Take the lift to the top and enjoy a panoramic view of Mar del Plata. There is a small exhibition of instruments used in the water tower from its early ages.

The tower is old and beautiful to look at. The observation area could have a better view. One cannot go outside and the windows are plastic and scratched.

This was certainly and interesting building.It was free to enter and we went up the elevator to the top and had a good view over the city. The area surrounding it is also of interest with many buildings that were of an interesting architecture design. There is plenty of information about the building
