Puerto Maldonado Obelisk - City Plaza Puerto Maldonado - Peru

The idea of building a five-story-high obelisk in downtown Puerto Maldonado may seem odd. However, this ungainly structure gives both locals and visitors an opportunity to take in the vast and verdant Peruvian jungle from a unique perspective. The tower itself is an eyesore, but the view from the top is breathtaking. Sometimes the elevator works and sometimes it doesn't. Either way, the stairs may be the better option if you are in shape.
