  • In Plaza independence. You can travel only or with guides that come out from this square and explain a little more about the history

  • As our monument to the Gl at the Aterro do Flamengo in Rio, this mausoleum brings the same character of tribute and remembrance of who was part of the story. In the case of Uruguay, José Gervasio Artigas was a very influential, despite the low-ranking, in the struggle for the independence of Uruguay. The site has many phrases he assigned and note, we read, a concern and appreciation of the people. It's a quick visit, but Valley, and from there you can go to the theater Solis, or Ciudad Vieja and its attractions.

  • Worth a trip, but it's a quick visit. There's not much to see, but it's interesting and is well located, near several other points of interest.

Where to stay in Montevideo

Montevideo's central neighborhoods offer plenty of hostels for budget-minded travelers, as well as a good selection of mid-range hotels for visitors looking for a bit more space and privacy.
