Description
It is one of the most highlighted buildings in Rosario's architecture. It is located in front of El Cairo's bar and was built between 1922 and 1927. Intended to be the highest pinnacle in town: 65 meters tall.

It can be considered an open-sky museum, with many pieces of Art's history. In which we can see the faces of the owner, the project designer and other important caracters of its time.

The corner has an important bronzed-acces door, sorounded with columns. On the same corner we can see the tower with distint-decrescient-size levels. It is pinnacled with a weather vane. This tower has a four-cuadrant clock that plays the londoner Big Ben's sound.

In the beginning in 2011, on the basemen will hold the first museum dedicated to Democracy in Argentina.
