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.

    The source of the locks is legal and everyone needs to know, including there's a sign telling the story.

    Place which is passed during their tour by the Avenida 18 de julio, is interesting for those who wish to leave an impersonal mark of their passage through the city, sealing a compromise or whatever, in the style of the great cities of the world.

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.
