Plaza Independencia, Montevideo
Categories: Landmarks, Tourist Spots
Encircled by busy roads and countless important buildings, Plaza Independencia acts as the nerve center of Montevideo. The square's centerpiece, a 30-ton bronze statue of Jose Artigas, the national hero who helped Uruguay achieve its independence, stands proudly in the middle of the expansive public space. Go below the statue to visit a mausoleum holding the revolutionary leader's remains.

サルボ宮殿と騎馬像を一緒に写真に収めることができます。少し離れた通りでチョリパンの屋台を見つけ、ここで気持ちの良いランチを取りました。Salvo Palace and the equestrian statue to fit a picture together. Find the choripan stalls on the street a short distance, took a nice lunch here.show original
Green and well maintained! Visit the Artigas mausoleum under the statue. This square was designed in the 1830s by Carlo Zucchi, inspired in the Rue de Rivoli, Paris
As close as it gets for the national mall of Uruguay. The plaza is well maintained and you'll see plenty of Uruguanos hanging around drinking their mate. The mausoleum is worth checking out but it will only take a moment or two of your time.
It's a beautiful place. It's worth visiting the museum located underneath the statue.
While a nice square during the daytime, perhaps not the best place to hang out, especially while alone, during the evening hours as the lighting of it could be improved.

Not kept very clean. However it is a nice view.
