We visited this area and really expected much more from it. Normally when you go to area that symbolises a city you expect to be blown away. Sadly this was not the case here. The Main Street was attractive enough but there was a sense of hopelessness everywhere you looked. Graffiti seems to dominate and lots of shops are boarded up, yet open. We were unfortunate to be here just as the extent of COVID-19 was impacting on South America and clearly did not see Montevideo at its best.

We liked the Independence Plaza - there are so many historic buildings there and the tango museum. The Avenida 18 de Julio is the main "drag" between the plaza and Batlle Park where the large football (soccer) stadium is and the great monument La Carreta which is a tribute to the establishment of the cattle industry. There are still more cattle than people in Uruguay and they are very proud of how they raise the cattle. The avenue is less than 2 miles from end to end and is a nice introduction into the city.

The concombe drummers and dancers will get your heart racing. The crowd is lively, festive, and fun -- but it's all a good relaxed, laid-back affair that makes it much less hectic or erratic than the chaos in New Orleans and other places. This is the place for Carnaval.

This is an important avenue with some very beautiful art nouveau buildings, some of them in a deplorabil estate.

I simply love the Avenida, and am drawn to it every time I visit Montevideo. Sure, maybe the “high-end” stores have left for snooty (boring) malls, but the street is still a retail hub of Montevideo that teams with activity and life every day. Weekdays are great when everything is open, but even on weekend when most shops are shuttered, you’ll find ample activity and people simply strolling and enjoying this beautiful city. The best part of the Avenida, however, are the wonderful plazas stung along its length that provide places to rest, people-watch, and enjoy some of the city’s most stunningly beautiful architecture. Have a bite at Bar Facal and grab a window seat, and watch the activity in the Avenida pass by. Don’t miss the tango dancing on weekends in Plaza Fabini. Great street!
