El Prado, Montevideo
(4.3/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • I really enjoyed the neighborhood is well wooded. It is the Botanical Garden and the Museum Juan Manuel Blanes with its Japanese garden. Has many old mansions, some of them abandoned, I imagine that families unable to afford the costs. Worth the visit!

  • The Prado is a park, ideal for walking and walking in Montevideo. There are several monuments in the area and it is also in the rose garden.
