Plaza de la Armada, Montevideo

(4.3/5 based on 95+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • It is a beautiful view of water. We went by a tour bus so we stop lots of places. Make sure you wear a comfortable shoes :) 
  • It is one of the prettiest points of Montevideo with a panoramic view of 180 degrees on the Río de la Plata. There is the coast and their rambla preferably westward. It should be better maintained and serviced acordes(buenas veredas,sanitarios,miradores acordes).

  • The Plaza de la Armada or Virgil square is a very nice site and from this point you have a view of the coast of Montevideo towards the West or West... the view is lost and sometimes weather conditions allow to see for example towards the East to Punta Ballena! It tends to be well looked after and is a place of leisure activities to enjoy in tranquility. Always is an enjoy going and stay is a good time.
