Accommodation & Apartments in Montevideo
Montevideo is the capital city of Uruguay in South America and home to a large portion of the country's population. On the banks of the Rio de la Plata, it is the southernmost capital city in South America. Montevideo was founded in 1724 and first consisted of the small area now known as the Ciudad Vieja or 'Old Town'. By the mid-19th century the city had grown eastward and the expansion enabled the construction of the Plaza Independencia and the Boulevard Artigas. National Geographic describes Montevideo as offering “refined cosmopolitan attractions to rival those of any city in the hemisphere.” There is a lot to see and do in the city for tourists including a trip to the numerous beachfront promenades, opportunitites to taste the favorite local drink “mate” and many historic and contemporary landmarks to enjoy.
