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.

  • This beautiful monument is an emblematic photo of the city, it is in the parque Batlle, also known as Park's allies. It's a cart pulled by oxen made of bronze. It is very close to the estadio Centenario, another place to visit.

  • Beautiful park and well maintained! Worth knowing it opposite the stadium! for Matt in the shadow of the groves that surround it!

  • This was another incredibly detailed sculpture similar to similar to Monument a la Diligencia. If you are in the area worth looking at, but as others have said, no need to go out of your way to see it...  more »
