ONE OF SOUTH AMERICA’S SISTER CITIES

The island hill in the distance is the symbol of the city. Our morning bus tour was a good way to see Montevideo’s highlights.
Uruguay’s capital is on the shores of the River Plate – whose mouth on the Atlantic Ocean is 150 miles wide. This beach is riverfront!
Soldiers in the beautiful Congress building guard the original Constitution.
A “small” replica of Notre Dame in Paris – situated on a quiet side street in this very European-styled city.
In the Parque Batlle is the Carreta Statue, dedicated to Uruguay’s pioneers.
Also a good place to make a sale – sheepskin gloves to bring back to Massachusetts!
