Monumento Nacional de La Bandera & Landmark Walk - City Walk Rosario - Argentina

The first thing to check out the Monumento Nacional de la Bandera, which is an impressive sight and offers plenty to do. The massive 70-meter (230-ft) tall monument commemorates General Manuel Belgrano, who is credited with creating the Argentine flag. The tower stands on the exact spot where the first Argentine flag was raised and is a source of great pride for many Argentineans. Below the monolith is a museum celebrating flags from nearly every country of the American continents, from Canada to Chile. Don't forget to head to the top of the tower for the views during the day, but the monument itself is most impressive by night when it is bathed in blue lights and looks like a massive replica of the flag.
