Montevideo was founded in 1724 at the location now known as the Ciudad Vieja (Old Town). During the 19th century, the city expanded and today’s Centro emerged; by 1910, the surrounding suburbs had already taken their place and the city its final size.
As Uruguay’s capital, Montevideo is the home of almost half of the country’s population and the centre of arts, culture and social life of Uruguay. Industrial ports meet beautiful sea resorts, the colonial art deco meets the neoclassical of the Old Town and music, theatre and art flourishes in the streets of Montevideo.
Travel to Montevideo and see for yourself; a destination like no other!
Montevideo’s airport (Aeropuerto Internacional de Carrasco) is located 20 kilometres outside the city centre and can be reached by a number of buses.
Getting around Montevideo
You can get around Montevideo using the city’s extensive bus network. Fares start at 13.50 UYU and minimum taxi fare costs 30.50 UYU.
Your day in Montevideo begins at the Centro area. If there was time only to visit one museum of the city, then it would definitely be the Museo del Gaucho y de la Moneda, housed in the Palacio Heber. This is a great opportunity to find out more about Montevideo’s culture and traditions and especially the history of gauchos, something like the South American cow boys. Collections include jewellery, historical items, artefacts and all kids of horse-riding and mate-making equipment.
Continue to Plaza Independencia, Montevideo’s central square and gateway to the Old Town (Ciudad Vieja ), dominated by the statue of General José Gervasio Artigas, major national hero of Uruguay.
Within short distance, the elegant Teatro Solís dates back to 1856 and, famous for its top quality acoustics, has been hosting concerts, plays and exhibitions ever since.
Old Town’s main reference point and landmark is the Constitution Square (Plaza Constitución), where the Constitution of Uruguay was signed.
At the square’s eastern side, the neoclassical building of the former city hall “El Cabildo” dates back to 1812 and now houses the Municipal Archive of Montevideo, with precious collections of documents, maps, photographs, antics, costumes and works of art of the city of Montevideo.Uruguay’s official language is Spanish.
To enter Montevideo, you need to have a passport, valid up until 6 months after your travel dates. Greek citizens do not need a Visa, for a maximum stay of 90 days.
