    Lovely place to rest in the middle of tour of the old city, where its founded Montevideo in 1.726 and who knew how to be walled. It has outstanding source and sculptural group in the middle of it and is surrounded by dozens of places where you can eat or drink. Highly recommended tour in spring and summer.

    This small square in the heart of the old town is very picturesque. It is way in any walk that is made by the old town. Worth a stop for some pictures

    Not the largest plaza, but one of the more peaceful and attractive. The architecture here is less brutal and the park's statues are worth seeing.  more »
