  • As in other cities around the world, Montevideo also has its source so lovers chaining their relationship and secure it by placing a padlock with their initials or message of love to the fence that surrounds a beautiful fountain which is located in the center of the city this ri tual is observed not only by passers-by but by a Carlos Gardel's life-size bronze, with whom you can photograph you taking a coffee or an ice cream, and occasionally enjoy a tango dancing live. Nice corner. Those who sell padlocks: rejoicing!

  • In a very central corner of Montevideo next to Café Facal is this small fountain where lovers leave their locks as the bridge of Paris, last look when through the Av 18 de Julio.
