  • THE OMBÚ Blvd. Spain and Luis de la Torre - B ° Pocitos is one of the icons of the neighborhood of Pocitos, which was declared "American fraternity tree" in 1950. On October 12 of that year their roots were watered with water brought from 21 American countries. The ombú is a native Argentine and Uruguayan pampas and its name in guarani means "beautiful shadow". It is called the gaucho tree since its shadow sheltered travelers and to the ranch of the peasant. It is debated whether it's really a tree or a giant herb since its Green and moist stem does not have rings in the bark and the wood is soft. You can reach between 10 and 15 meters wide Cup and large roots that become visible and widen the base

  • If ask you to any Montevideo, they're going to say that it is a tree in the middle of a Boulevard... but it's really much more than that. Charting the Bvr. Spain this Ombú (tree that grows usually in solo) at the request of residents and with the support of some embassies it was decided to leave it in place and generate a roundabout that surround it. Many American embassies, donated land in their countries to assert his roots as a symbol of friendship and respect to nature. After this, became almost as a tradition in the city respecting the ombues instead and that's that others are in the same situation in different parts of Montevideo. It is a cute photo to draw, that if well regarded on both sides before going to the square.
