  • Although is a little far from the center of the city, the Racecourse of Maroñas is a piece of Montevideo, maintained in form excellent, with options gastronomic of first level. Really recommended for national and foreign. Not need to be player to attend, simply to observe one of the icons of the city historical.

  • An old building, completely updated, with everything you need to spend a good day of riding, still don't be 'burrero'

  • It is a bit far-fetched, but this beautiful Racecourse was temporarily closed. It was at the time of the 2002 crisis. Political efforts, new dealer and push many people managed the long-awaited reopening. There have been reforms respecting a very nice structure that were made with good taste. Also a hard political work managed to integrate it into the select international circuit. Today it is a beautiful Racecourse with dirt track. With attractive racing h the ability to interact with different racecourses in substance in the world. Very good restaurant, children's playground. It is also rented for special events. It is worth visiting it.
