Highlights of a Free Tour in Montevideo

While enjoying strolling through the Old Town with Montevideo Free Walking Tours, you will find plenty of sights to enthrall you, especially if you are a fan of architecture. As you enter the Old Town, you will see the Citadel Gateway, the last remaining part of the city wall. Start at the Plaza Independencia, downtown Montevideo’s main square that commemorates revolutionary hero José Artigas. From here you see the striking Salvo Palace. It used to be the tallest building on the continent. Also in the Old Town are Montevideo Cathedral and the Solis Theater, Uruguay’s most prominent art venue. Uruguay has a fantastic collection of museums. Top among them is the Museum of Fine Arts. Even if you don’t enter, the building is stunning, and it also has a lovely Japanese garden.

Things to Do in Montevideo

Montevideo boasts one of the things that make a city great. Beaches! OK, so they are not the best in the world, but they are a great place to head to on a hot day. Or take a stroll along La Rambla, a 13-mile walkway (22km) separating the city and the sea. It’s great for a breath of fresh air. It is also a very important meeting place for locals. Head down to the Harbor Market for a great range of eateries and a lively local atmosphere. Try anything from the parrilla (where meat or seafood is grilled). If you are lucky, on a Sunday evening you can catch Candombe performances. Originally brought to South America by enslaved Africans, this music and dance performance is now a UNESCO-declared world cultural heritage and a must-see.
