Salvo Palace (Palacio Salvo)
Completed in 1928, Salvo Palace (Palacio Salvo) is a historical landmark building featuring an eclectic architectural style—predominantly Italian Gothic, with classic and neo-romantic influences. Originally planned as a hotel, it is now an office and apartment building.

The Basics
Salvo Palace was once one of the tallest buildings in South America. Standing at 312 feet (95 meters), its remains a city symbol thanks to its distinctive design. To see the building’s exterior, visit independently or take a sightseeing tours of Montevideo, such as a walking tour of Old Town (Ciudad Vieja). For access to the 10th floor rooftop and 25th floor of the building, join a  guided tour leaving from the lobby.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Salvo Palace is popular with those interested in architecture.
  • You have to climb two sets of stairs and a short ladder to reach the viewing deck.
  • Tours are run in Spanish or English.

How to Get There
Salvo Palace is in the heart of Montevideo, at the intersection of Plaza Independencia and 18 de Julio Avenue. It’s a short walk of many centrally located Montevideo hotels and attractions including Teatro Solis. The ferry terminal is about 1 mile (1.6 kilometers) away for about a 20-minute walk.

When to Get There
Guided tours to the viewing deck and rooftop typically run in late morning and early afternoon in  summer. For sparkling views, prebook the nighttime tour, which also takes you to additional corners of the building and relates stories about its history.

Tango Museum
Salvo Palace was built on the site where Gerardo Matos Rodríguez wrote La Cumparsita, probably the most recognizable tango in the world, in 1917. You can learn about the history of tango and watch a show inside the building.
Address: Intersection of 18 de Julio Avenue and Plaza Independencia, Montevideo, Uruguay

This iconic skyscraper of the city of Montevideo has been a historical and cultural emblem, throughout its almost 100 years of existence many characters have passed through its corridors and some apparently still in them, this tour invites the visitor to know the hidden side of this concrete giant. A unique experience surrounded by mystery, alchemy and secrets that are born with the Salvo brothers and apparently did not die with them.

I think that I am able to provide a lively historical review of the Old City. Many who come to Uruguay, arrive via Cruise liners and I believe that throughout the 2 and half hours that I show them around, that they have fallen a little in love with the city. The Old City has a lot of history waiting to be uncovered, as a guide I am there to reveal that while we walk around, we are also walking around with the past.
