  • It's really cool in downtown Montevideo. It has a very beautiful monument in honor of the founder of the city. Clean, beautiful and conserved. With multiple bank under the trees, a great place to rest during the tour of the Ciudad Vieja. There really close is the Palacio Taranco, a Museum of decorative arts. The funds of the Palace are facing this Plaza. So this square as the Palace are mandatory stops in Ciudad Vieja.

  • It is a nice square in the middle of the old part of Montevideo. It combines colonial architecture with the movement of the financial centre
