Plaza de la Armada, Montevideo

4.2
#3 of 18 in Outdoors in Montevideo
Enjoy views of the South Atlantic Ocean and the nearby city as you stroll through Plaza de la Armada. Plenty of grass, trees, flowerbeds, and walking areas make up the square, which closely resembles a park. Find a bronze sculpture by Spanish artist Eduardo Diaz Yepes, located at the top of a hill and depicting the hands of a man clinging to a shapeless mass, representing the bitter moment of death. Head downhill toward the water to stroll along the promenade, or sit down at the local eatery and grab a bite while you take in a waterfront view.

Where to stay in Montevideo

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. Luxury rooms are harder to come by, especially if you arrive without a reservation. If you want to indulge your every desire, your best bet is the waterfront area, where you can find four- and five-star hotels offering all the modern amenities you need, including complimentary bicycles and car rental services.
