  • Beautiful place, where nature and architecture are combined to convey many feelings. Moving in all directions, it is far from the Centre but worth the walk its trails and forest, knowing its meaning.

  • I don't have any tourist interest. Located in the neighborhood of the Hill it's a monument in memory of the disappeared during the military dictatorship.

  • Apart from that place that was chosen to build it and the monument is well achieved aesthetically speaking also is capable of transmitting all that was intended to make it. Before I read what meaning had every thing and that made me feel differently. Really very well done.

Where to stay in Montevideo

Montevideo's central neighborhoods offer plenty of hostels for budget-minded travelers, as well as a good selection of mid-range hotels for visitors looking for a bit more space and privacy. Luxury rooms are harder to come by, especially if you arrive without a reservation. If you want to indulge your every desire, your best bet is the waterfront area, where you can find four- and five-star hotels offering all the modern amenities you need, including complimentary bicycles and car rental services.
