“In the area”
Reviewed December 26, 2013

Combine this and the Fort for a day of history. The surrounding neighborhood is not the best in Montevideo. It pays to keep aware of your surroundings and the people around you. It does get very crowded in the summer months when everyone has come down to the beach. I agree with Art Property, stop in at the Golf course for a drink.

“Memorial de los Detenidos Desaparecidos”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

It is an average monument, I cannot rate this monument as excellent or terrible...this depends on the person I guess, it is just a monument, stands for a sad cause, but has nothing in itself making it a wow one.

“Unique”
Reviewed June 17, 2012

Worth a detour both to see El Cerro but also because of what this monument stands for and it actually has been done very tastefully. Offer yourself a drink at the local golf course afterwards for a travel through time.
