What To Expect

Plaza Matriz
The Plaza de la Constitución or Plaza Matriz is located in the city of Montevideo, Uruguay, in the center of the historic neighborhood of Ciudad Vieja. It was the Plaza Mayor of the Fortress City of San Felipe and Santiago de Montevideo, in which it was the only open public space conceived as such. From the Plaza Matriz you will see the pedestrian sarandi, the Ministry of transport, the town hall and the Uruguay club.

The construction of the Plaza Independencia in the space occupied by the old Citadel was an idea carried out by the architect Carlo Zucchi in 1837, when it was decided to expand the old colonial city, as part of a general planning plan.
We will report why they are ornamented with 33 palm trees, in homage to the Thirty-Three Orientals who participated in the Liberation Crusade. From the Plaza we can appreciate the Palacio Salvo, the Solis Theater, the Executive Tower, the Estevez Palace and the old Puerta de la Ciudadela.

Amazing the city tour

The guide is a good person and talk a lot with us. Told a lot histories about Montevideo. I recommend this city tour. They are pontual, a lot. ❤️
A great orientation!

This was a fantastic tour…the day after a huge storm and the weather was bad, but our tour guide was so good that it didn’t matter. We saw a huge number of sites and he helped orient us to both the history and geography of Montevideo. I was also amazed with how he gave the tour in English, Portuguese, and Spanish…really making a connection with everyone on the tour. I highly recommend taking this tour in the first day or two of arriving, so that you can get a sense of the city and all there is to do!
Great but we prepare for some changes

Great all morning tour! Except for the return some logistical issues. Tour guide was excellent with the information and translation in 3 languages. Arturo from the pick up van was amazing!
