The Municipal Park is a good example. It is spread along the Olimar riverbanks. Apart from catch and release fishing, some water sports can be practiced there. Kayaking, for example, is one of the most popular among the city residents.

I like Your History

A walk around the historical downtown area of the city is a must in order to see the oldest and most typical buildings inviting you to imagine how this beautiful city stood the hardships of conquests, political positioning and strategies that took place because of its proximity to Brazil.

The main avenue of the city is named after the national hero called Juan Antonio Lavalleja. Hundreds of youngsters meet there every day, usually at sunset, to tell anecdotes with mate as their constant companion and to spend hours together until late at night.

The main square of the city is called 19 de Abril in honor to the date on which 33 eastern patriotic heroes disembarked on the nearby beaches to Montevideo. This changed the course of history and achieved the long awaited national independence. In their honor, a huge monument gives shape and color to the square and becomes the most significant icon for the city and its residents.

Another icon to bear in mind is the obelisk which lies on the outskirts of the historical shell. This is a pointy formation reaching towards the sky. At its base, there is a sculpture of a never-ending flame, burning victorious despite the passing of time.
