“Really impressive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2013

This is a huge marble monument that dominates the area where it sits overlooking the river - really unexpected in a somewhat tranquila ciudad some 200 miles from the bustling capital. It is almost a combination of the Lincoln and WWII monuments in DC in size and scope and covered in quotes from Argentine hero General Belgrano, and includes an eternal flame and plenty of steps where you can sit and people watch. Unfortunately when I was there it was marred a but by a scrum of dirty Boca fans holding a rally :)

“Fantastic view and a glimpse of Argentinian and Southamerican history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2013

The Flag monument, right in the most beautiful zone of Rosario riverside, has a fantastic view and a let's you get a glimpse of Argentinian and America-continent history.
You can climb up the monument and get a fantastic view of the city and the river and also, in the base of the Monuments, there's a very interesting museum.
A couple of blocks away from the monument you can go for a boat ride of Rosario river coasts. Very nice to do.

A must-see if you are in town.

You don´t need a lot of time to check out the monument, but it is very impressive and the history is great. The first flag of Arg was raised at the monument.

“Worth a visit, won't take long!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013

This eye catching monument right on the river front is definitely worth a stop, and will not take much of your time. We went with a guide, who was able to explain all of the details in it which really enhanced the visit. There are a number of excellent photo opportunities, and it was worth coming back at night for when it is all lit up!
