Modernism and tradition combine in the old city of Montevideo. Discover its architectural legacy with this free tour around the Uruguyuan capital. Best of all - it's free!

Free tour of Montevideo

We will start our free tour of Montevideo in Independence Square in the heart of this beautiful city, where you will see a beautiful set of majestic buildings and historic monuments. Our guide will reveal the background of each of these important landmarks.

The first stop on the free tour of Uraguay's capital will take place in front of the Mausoleum of José Gervasio, whose life story is full of interesting twists and turns... then the tour continues through Constitution Square, where we'll drink in the imposing façade of the Montevideo Metropolitan Cathedral.

Next we head to Café Brasileiro and Plaza Zabala, where we'll immerse you in the long history, anecdotes and curious facts to do with the old town: a history as entertaining as it is surprising! 

The free tour then ends in the popular and lively Port Market.
