La escollera, Montevideo

3.1
Fishing enthusiasts will love La escollera, a favorite area of the port where locals cluster for a catch. Alternatively, watch the ships coming in and out of the harbor, or just take a long walk down this peaceful shore with its panoramic sea views. The neighborhood close to the harbor holds significant historical and colonial interest, with a checkered past in African slavery.

  • If the day is nice, you can have a good photo of the Bay of Montevideo with the Hill in the background. If this cloudy or there is wind you don't suggest you go because you volas and soaked with water splashing.

  • In the Plaza Independencia you cross the door of the Citadel and take the pedestrian Sarandi, and at the end you'll come across the breakwater. Is very used by Montevideo in search of a good fishing. I don't consider it a tourist attraction.

  • A beautiful place to enjoy fishing, overlooking the Río de la plata and the input and output of ships to the main terminal in the country.
