“Fantastic Atmosphere”
Reviewed February 14, 2012

Although there is actually nothing specific that you have to visit, the athmosphere is what's worth feeling. You will see colorful houses and many people rehearsing "candombe", uruguay´s most typical carnival exppression. very interesting and different, if you are looking for a change and want to give it a rest to visiting museums.

“Trees, Patios, and Friendly People”
Reviewed December 17, 2011

Strolling around Barrio Sur almost makes you homesick - it is so friendly and happy - dogs and children and cafes and shops along tree lined avenues.
