  • An imposing and majestic building. Stands out in the landscape of Montevideo. Don't visit your interior, but your outer vision pays off.

  • A very pretty imposing building situated in an area with square where if you can have a good view of the building. Must go through there on a site tour because it is one of the most beautiful buildings of the city

  • It's a Palace, but unfortunately I could not visit internally. I would like to warn you that, if you are by car, is hard on the seasonal area.

  • 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.
  • hermoso edificio visitas guiadas gratis para ciudadanos uruguayos
