  • The construction is of 1925 and, besides the beautiful architecture, features decorative elements that impress is the beauty of sculpture or by the use of noble materials of the Uruguay itself. The tour is a must, it costs 90 pesos and can be made into Portuguese. Occurs at 10:30 and at 15:00 hours from Monday to Friday. The guide is very helpful and responds to questions with patience.

  • The seat of the Uruguayan Parliament is a beautiful building from the early 20th century, which, if by now impresses on the inside is more beautiful still. Worth doing the Grand Tour (in Portuguese) to meet the Chamber of senators, Chamber of Deputies and the library. It costs 90 pesos, from Monday to Friday at 10:30 and at 15:00 h.

  • 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
