Bicentennial Monument

The historical city of Argentina celebrated its 200 years of independence declaration in 2016. This monument honored one of the most important national events. It is located in 1600 Mate de Luna Avenue, one of the main transports links.

This important masterpiece is made of two concrete columns of more than 20 m tall. They represent the Argentine flag. Moreover, there are also iron structures which symbolize broken chains in honour to the gained freedom.

There is a time capsule in the lower part of the monument. It contains a book with thousands signs of people from Tucumán. The idea is to unbury it to celebrate the tercentenary of the independence.

Finally, another remarkable characteristic is its location. The monument is on the main avenue and in front of Avellaneda Park, known as the west green lung of the city. This combination between a green area and the bustling avenue creates a unique view.
