Travel back in time

Visiting the old city of Montevideo is like traveling back in time. It has a special magic you can appreciate and admire as the Uruguayans fought to preserve their heritage and colony. This district is strikingly different from the rest of the city and can be entered through the door of the ancient citadel which is still standing.

Uruguay is not a large country, and therefore also the capital Montevideo is not too big. The city is very manageable, so and a day trip to explore enough. The old town of Montevideo located on a peninsula and is characterized by a harmonious architecture. Many of the historic buildings date from the colonial era. Life here seems less hectic than in other capitals. Also inviting Plaza de Zabala and the marketplace a. The central square called "Plaza Independencia", here are numerous people gather. In the pedestrian area along the Avenida 18 de Julio to find many artists selling their paintings. A highlight what should not be missed in the direction of the harbor: The market hall with the simple name "Mercado". Here"s next local specialties also the one or other souvenir. Who does not want to stay an extra in Montevideo, may follow this advice: From Buenos Aires, you can reach Montevideo with speed ferry in about 3 hours. Enabling you to switch early and late drive back. We made the experience that 4 to 5 hours to explore the (old) city suffice perfectly.

Uruguay ist kein großes Land, weswegen auch die Hauptstadt Montevideo nicht allzu groß ist. Die Innenstadt ist sehr überschaubar, sodass und ein Tagesausflug zur Erkundung ausreichte.
Die Altstadt Montevideos liegt auf einer Halbinsel und ist geprägt von einer hübschen Architektur. Viele der historischen Bauten stammen aus der Kolonialzeit. Das Leben scheint hier weniger hektisch als in anderen Hauptstädten. Zum Verweilen laden die Plaza de Zabala und der Marktplatz ein. Der zentrale Platz heißt „Plaza Independencia“, hier tummeln sich zahlreiche Menschen. In der Fußgängerzone entlang der Straße Avenida 18 de Julio findet sich viele Künstler, die ihre Gemälde verkaufen. Ein Highlight, was man in Richtung des Hafens nicht verpassen sollte: Die Markthalle mit dem schlichten Namen „Mercado“ . Hier gibt’s neben einheimischen Spezialitäten auch das eine oder andere Souvenir.

Wer nicht extra in Montevideo übernachten möchte, kann diesen Rat befolgen: Von Buenos Aires aus erreicht man Montevideo mit der Speedfähre in ca. 3 Stunden. So kann man früh hin- und spät wieder zurückfahren. Wir machten die Erfahrung, dass 4 bis 5 Stunden zur Erkundung der (Alt-)Stadt vollkommen ausreichen.

The pleasure of living

Montevideo was founded by the Spanish in 1726 to counter the cities of the Portuguese on the coast, and Colonia del Sacramento. It is on a peninsula, with the huge commercial port on one side, and beaches on the other, just like my hometown, La Coruña, but a bit bigger, as it has one and a half million inhabitants. Montevideo has a rich cultural, social and night, and the old town is the meeting place for the weekend, I discovered that the street where my hotel, the Palace (do not believe the high-sounding names of the hotels), is for pedestrian and terraces filled. The two main squares are Independence Square, the most spectacular of Montevideo, and the Constitution Square, the Cabildo and the Mother Church, 1799, has already served 210 years.

El placer de vivir

Montevideo fue fundada en 1726 por los españoles para contrarestar a las ciudades de los portugueses en la costa, como Colonia del Sacramento.

Está en una península, con el enorme puerto comercial a un lado, y las playas en el otro, exactamente igual que mi ciudad natal, La Coruña, pero un poco más grande, ya que tiene 1 millón y medio de habitantes.

Montevideo tiene una intensa vida cultural, social y nocturna, y la ciudad vieja es el lugar de encuentro para el fin de semana; descubrí que la calle donde estaba mi hotel, el Palacio (no os creáis los nombres rimbombantes de los hoteles), se hace peatonal y se llena de terrazas.

Las 2 plazas principales son la plaza de la Independencia, la más espectacular de Montevideo, , y la plaza Constitución, con el Cabildo y la iglesia Matriz, de 1799, que ha cumplido ya 210 años.

Montevideo is a very nice not structural but rather very rstico city.

Montevideo is a very nice not structural but rather very rustic town. Very easy to get to tourist spots walking only recommended to use sunscreen and all is quiet. The only thing to consider in Uruguay is the high cost of tickets and meals on my trip from our country and took many tuna and sweet as to cicles cookies that help so you can learn more.

Montevideo es una ciudad muy linda no muy estructural sino más bien muy rústico.

Montevideo es una ciudad muy linda no muy estructural sino más bien muy rústico.
Muy fácil de llegar a los puntos turísticos caminando solo se recomienda usar protector solar y todo estará tranquilo.
Lo único al tener en cuenta en uruguay es lo costoso de los pasajes y las comidas en mi viaje ya desde nuestro país llevamos atún y muchos dulces como galletitas cicles eso ayudará al que puedas conocer más.

A city landmark, note that some parts are currently remodeling but not to get tired of walking. If it is important to be careful at night, can be a little dangerous.

Un lugar emblemático de la ciudad, se nota que actualmente algunas partes están en remodelación pero es para no cansarse de recorrer. Si es importante tener cuidado a la noche, puede llegar a ser un poco peligroso.

The old city of Montevideo has numerous streets and alleys. Everything there smells old and there is a story behind everything. Mute witness of better times, and the worst either to forget, this neighborhood guard the whole essence of Montevideo of yesteryear, with its cafés intact over the years, its shops that seem drawn from a book of history and its streets footpaths that lead into small squares or, after all, at the mouth of the Rio de La Plata. This zone is most offices, there are almost no houses. The old part begins practically at the Independence Square, behind the door of the citadel. Then, from the street Sarandi, enters a maze of streets that form an almost perfect square. The streets, though very similar, each have the special touch or a place that makes them different. It's worth spending a morning to take a walk around, have a coffee in one of the terraces of bars, wander down to the harbor and enjoy even more of the market that is there. At night this is one of the liveliest and most bars around Montevideo. The music is predominantly salsa and Latin styles, but there are also bars with other music. Most of them have live performances almost every weekend. The consumições are cheap (and no dispenser) and something very typical of the area is put long tables in the street so you can drink your cup outdoors. Like virtually all office are not bothering the neighbors. It's amazing the amount of people coming out to the street for fun on weekends. The streets are filled with many bars and is almost impossible to move. Next door, in the street of Independencia, are the largest nightclubs in the area.

A cidade velha de Montevideo tem inúmeras ruas e ruelas. Tudo ali cheira a antigo e há uma história por detrás de tudo. Testemunha muda de épocas melhores, piores e uma ou outra para esquecer, este bairro guarda toda a essência de Montevideo de antigamente, com os seus cafés intactos ao passar dos anos, as suas lojas que parecem sacadas de um livro de história e as suas ruas pedonais que desembocam em pequenas praças ou, no fim de tudo, na desembocadura do Rio de La Plata.

Esta zona é mais de escritórios, quase não há vivendas. A parte velha começa praticamente na praça da Independencia, detrás da porta da cidadela. Aí, desde a rua Sarandi, entra-se num emaranhado de ruas que formam uma quadrícula quase perfeita.

As ruas, ainda que muito parecidas, têm cada uma o toque especial ou um lugar que as torna diferentes. Vale a pena passar uma manhã a dar uma voltinha por aqui, tomar um café em alguma das esplanadas dos bares, passear até ao porto e desfrutar ainda mais do mercado que está aí.

À noite esta é uma das zonas mais animadas e com mais bares de todo Montevideo. A música predominante é a salsa e os estilos latinos, mas também existem bares com outro tipo de música. A maioria deles têm actuações em directo quase todos os fins de semana. As consumições são baratas (e sem dosificador) e algo muito típico da zona é pôr mesas compridas na rua para que possas beber o teu copo ao ar livre. Como praticamente tudo são escritório, não incomoda aos vizinhos.

É impressionante ver a quantidade de gente que sai à rua para se divertir aos fins de semana. As ruas estão repletas e em muitos bares é quase impossível mexer-se. Logo ao lado, na praça da Independencia, estão as discotecas maiores da zona.
