  • An epic and imposing building, with many details and valuable steps to be seen and photographed. Take the opportunity to learn more about the legislative policy framework.

  • It is the seat of the Chamber of Deputies and the Senate of Uruguay. It is the most imposing building in the city, calling attention to your size and your architecture. How is located a little farther than the other points of interest, I advise you take public transportation or rent a bicycle.

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.
