El Prado, Montevideo

(550+ reviews on the web)
Nature / Park
The city's largest public park, El Prado serves as a quiet green space and gathering place away from the bustle of the capital. Spread out over 106 hectares (262 acres), the park plays home to more than 1,000 species of plants, several gardens, and a range of pergolas, monuments, statues, and other landmarks. Go for a stroll through its expansive grounds, following the bank of the Miquelete Creek surrounded by palm trees and other native foliage. Bring a picnic to enjoy a meal in the great outdoors, or simply kick back and watch locals go by. Put El Prado into our Montevideo vacation trip planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Montevideo.

  • Very nice place for a stroll outdoors, less frequented by tourists than other attractions. For some (not much) requires a little care in not getting lost on the way, but just follow the Legislative Palace. Great option to the following: Mercado del Puerto, Legislative Palace, the agricultural market and Belvedere del Cerro (that is by car will find a beard.

  • A couple of days ago I asked for grilled things and it caught my attention a detail, communicated with the place and it was a good change of words. My wish is to be one case more than isolated. Damaged and lament is unfair scoring for what is the standard of the place but in my so-called let glimpse the cause. Best regards
