Torre Monumental (Spanish for "Monumental Tower"), formerly known as Torre de los Ingleses ("Tower of the English"), is a clock tower located in the barrio (district) of Retiro in Buenos Aires, Argentina. It is situated in the Plaza Fuerza Aérea Argentina (formerly Plaza Britannia) by San Martín Street and Avenida del Libertador. It was a gift from the local British community to the city in commemoration of the centennial of the May Revolution of 1810.
After the Falklands War in 1982, the tower's original name was dropped, though some still call it Torre de los Ingleses.

Quite possibly one of the more interesting squares I've had the pleasure of stumbling upon. There were lots of friendly people laying on the green watching the clock tower, ignoring the sidewalk's subliminal messages of warnings to come.

I don't know you guys but I love this tower. The architecture is very european and it contrasts with many of modern buildings nearby. The view from San Martín square is amazing for sunsets. Don't miss this when you visit Buenos Aires. In the past the use to call it Torres de Los Ingleses.

A very nice clock tower in Plaza san martin that was presented to the city by the English Expatriate community in 1916. Distinctive red brick tower.

Nice tower, saw it from a distance as part of a tour. The tower was a gift from Britain in commemoration of the May 1810 revolution.
