  • Very interesting place to visit, in the old town, overlooking the Harbor, there is an exhibition of costumes, masks, puppets and elements that make the history of the Uruguayan Carnival, met him in Carnival, night, at the scaffold, a super friendly atmosphere, all made with lung and love, so I know without the help of the Government.
