"Symbol Of The City"

This monolith is a meeting place, for political demonstrations, musical performances and celebrations over victories of the national soccer team. It was dedicated in 1936, to commemorate the anniversary of Buenos Aires' first foundation. It measures 70 meters (230 feet) high and is made of reinforced concrete. In its interior a 200-hundred-step stairway,is used to perform maintenance jobs from the top. The obelisk brightens with white lights at night, but the gleams of surrounding neon billboards, is what gives the area its unique and colorful glow.
