  • I was delighted with the beautiful Palace, far-fetched and too big. We don't, because nobody warned us that had visitation. We were admiring just outside.

  • A shame not to be open to visitation when I was at the scene, but only the architecture already enchants. Is a very beautiful building and can only be visited.

  • Medio corrupto
  • Nice architecture, but the surrounded area need repairs.
  • A must visit in Montevideo. One of the iconic buildings of the city.
  • We were there on a Saturday and there was hardly anyone there. It was perfect. Details on the building a statue made it worth the 1.5 mile hike from Independence Park. A little dirty with litter.
