The monument is a nice memorial to the argentinian national flag that was created here. I dont recommend to go up to the tower since the views are obstructed by the fence it has. You dont see too much

There was nothing to dislike about the monument. Very tastefully done. Highly recommended. There is a lift to the top floor for a birds eye view of the city. The eternal flame makes for good photos

This is one of the most striking monuments I have seen. At night it it glows with the colors of the Argentina flag. We toured it on a foggy day, which made it look surreal. The colonnade is massive, the sculptures are fantastic in every detail, and the "prow" of the monument gives it a moving sense of history. Make... More

A part from the beautiful surroundings around the monument and the best view over all of Rosario from the top of the monument it represents one of the most important things in the history of America. A true must-see and truly worth it! The museum under the Monument is also worth a visit. Visited multiple times.

Rosario in general is a gem full of history next to a large river. As most cities in Argentina it seems as the 'golden period" is past but it is beginning to shine again. Lots of fish restaurants along the river where one can taste colorful fish I never seen before.

The day was incredible, but the place is unforgettable. By the coastline, in front of a park. Monumental, elegant and deep in its messages and expressions. A place to know in Argentina, and Rosario has a lot to see.

You can´t visit Rosario without visiting this monument.The artist who designed it thought in a kind of ship pointing to the Parana river, with the "patria"( soul of the country) as a woman leading with the flag in her hand.At both sides lay the statues of the Athlantic Ocean and the Parana River, and some more tells the battles for...

beatiful place and landscape. Visit the flags gallery. As a Rosario citizen I never miss a parade on June 20th.

This is an impressive plaza with a tower monument overlooking the river. As we were arriving it was closing for the long lunch and siesta and we never managed to get back to it.
