Fuente de los Candados, Montevideo

2.4
Add some romance to your trip with a visit to Fuente de los Candados. The Uruguayan legend says that if two lovers place a lock with their initials around the fountain, they can later return and their love will be forever locked. A charming point of interest, this site allows you to make a lasting memory (or ponder others') and then head to the small cafe nearby for a small meal or sweets. Afterwards, head across to the local handmade goods market that shares the square.

  • It is a source that is in a corner of the main avenue of Montevideo (AV. July 18). The source is interesting, full of locks. I think it's worth the visit and the joke!!

  • Is a source on the corner, in front of the bar Facal. Stay on the main avenue of the city centre, near the Ciudad Vieja, then probably you will pass by her. So, if you are passionate and like a joke, it's worth buying a padlock; sell at the newsstand across the street; and let your there. There are so many that you hold each other ... Then take a coffee in a café which is Facal.

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. Luxury rooms are harder to come by, especially if you arrive without a reservation. If you want to indulge your every desire, your best bet is the waterfront area, where you can find four- and five-star hotels offering all the modern amenities you need, including complimentary bicycles and car rental services.
