Categories: Monuments, Tourist Spots
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. Use our Montevideo trip builder to add La Carreta and other attractions to your Montevideo vacation plans.

LUIS BROCHEROTo get to Parque Batlle must pass through great part of Montevideo, across the Avenida 18 de Julio to bump head-on with the wooded park, went only to admire a sculpture who as a child saw a famous tourism magazine, I knew that I was there, my disappointment was to see something neglected green areas, but that do not rest you the grandeur and rich details to imposing sculpture that contrasted with the clean and deep blue of the summer sky City, José Belloni is its author, as well as many other beautiful sculptures abound by the parks of the city.show original
