  • It is a place steeped in history dating back to the year 1855. It takes its name in the year 1856 in memory of the 33 Orientals led by Lavalleja and Oribe who recovered the independence of the Eastern Province, which at that time was under Brazilian domain. In the square you can see a monument to Lavalleja, in addition to a mural painted by Juan Manuel Blanes and a sculpture of Albert Einstein and Carlos Vaz Ferreira, alluding to the meeting that had on April 24, 1925.
