The 76m Torre de los Ingleses (English Tower) was a donation by the City's British community in 1916. During the Falklands War of 1982, the tower was the target of bombs; since then, the plaza in which it stands has been renamed the Plaza Fuerza Aérea Argentina (Air Force Plaza). This link will bring you to the picture I took at the top of the tower. La Torre de los Ingleses (Tour Anglaise) de 76m, est une donation de la communauté britannique de la ville, en 1916. Pendant la guerre des Malouines de 1982, la tour était la cible des bombes; depuis lors, la place ou se trouve la tour, a été renommee "Plaza Fuerza Aérea Argentina" (Place de l'Armée de l'Air). Ce lien vous permettra de voir une photo prise du haut de la tour.
