Montevideo Sights and Tango
USDTBC per person
Your panoramic drive will take you into the old town, passing by many historic sites including Constitution Square, the Cathedral, Colonial Town Hall and the Solis Theatre. Marvel at Independence Square which features a monument dedicated to Uruguay’s national hero, General José Gervasio Artigas. Continue past the Prado neighbourhood, hosting the famous sculpture La Diligencia (the stage coach), view the obelisk, La Carreta (covered wagon monument) and the football stadium. Stop at Plaza Virgilio to view the monument dedicated to the Fallen Soldiers of the Navy, and enjoy excellent views of the city.Visit Pittamiglio’s House for a glass of local champagne, while tango music is played by musicians. Humberto Pittamiglio was an acknowledged engineer and architect of Montevideo born in Italy in 1886. This castle is a genuine labyrinth of 1300 square metres distributed in architecture of unfounded levels, that become broken as they follow one another without apparent logic, representing the successive transformations of man in its passage through the earth life.
