La Carreta, Montevideo

4.1
Cast your mind back to the days before automated transport at La Carreta. Depicting a 19th-century wagon pulled by hardworking oxen, the sizeable monument pays tribute to Uruguay's settlers, who toiled in their journeys across the country. Sculpted in 1934 by prominent artist José Belloni, the monument stands out as one of the main points of interest in its surrounding park. Keep your distance so as not to set off the monument's alarm--made necessary by vandals who once removed some of its pieces.

  • It offers very good pictures. A little neglected the paths of the park but has much nature around.

  • The work is located in Parque Batlle, right near the Centennial Stadium. Is made of brass and offers so much detail perfectly defined that even looks like a photo. The Park is also very nice, being an interesting if you're in the neighborhood. In General, tourists passing through there before or after a visit to the stadium and the Museum of football.

  • It is a different place within montevideo, plenty of open space to keep the children entertained, or to do sport.
