  • This tower is beautiful and lush. This mirador is the highest of Montevideo. I suggest check the schedule of visits on the site. Free entry. Worth the visit and take beautiful photos.

  • Timetable of the visit are crazy ... some days in the morning, others in the afternoon, better call there before or go the day before and find out the time of the next day (we did), but it is SUUUUPER! is the best view of Montevideo, no doubt (and I met almost all other viewpoints of Montevideo). A visit is free!

  • The imposing building of the Antel offers a free lift with panoramic views of the city. Is just wonderful and very well done. The only downside are the crazy hours they offer to visitors. Each day is a period. There are days it's morning, others in the afternoon, and so on.
