Monumento Nacional a la Bandera
Probably Rosario’s most recognizable landmark, the National Flag Monument was built as a memorial to the creator of the Argentinian flag, Manuel Belgrano. The flag was first revealed by Belgrano on an island in the Paraná river, just off the shores of Rosario, in 1812, and underneath the monument lies his tomb. Not only is the memorial an important historical attraction, but it also a spot for fantastic panoramic views of the city – the tower section of the monument is open to visitors who wish to climb to the top and look out over Rosario. As a central part of Rosario’s history, it is certainly worth a visit.
Opening hours: Mon 2 p.m.-6.30 p.m.; Tue-Sun 9 a.m.-6.30 p.m.
