In the plaza, look to its east side to admire Palacio Salvo, a 26-story building completed in the 1920s that was once the tallest building in Uruguay. Marvel at its beautiful architecture, and then head to the west end of the plaza to see Puerta de la Ciudadela, one of the few remaining structures of Montevideo’s colonial city wall. Next, visit the Port of Montevideo, which is one of South America's busiest ports and plays an important role in Uruguay's economy.
Continue to the neighborhood of El Prado, home to Prado Park and three soccer stadiums.
