6. TOURISTIC INFORMATION

Montevideo, capital city of Uruguay, harmoniously combines modernity and tradition. Ancient architectural treasures such as the Cabildo, the Cathedral and the Gate of the Citadel, architectural styles such as Art Nouveau and Art Deco buildings and modern ones as the Communications Building, provides the city with a unique identity.
The capital's promenade, balcony access to more than 30 kilometres of coastline, is one of the main attributes of Montevideo and a must ride for its inhabitants who often use it to drink mate and for long walks. So are lots of green spaces and parks that allow multiple outdoor options.
Montevideo also has a wide cultural scene. For example, the theatre productions, remarkably extensive and varied, include either classic shows as modern or alternative.
In museums, cultural centres and art galleries you can appreciate the art of a wide range of artists of international scope such as Juan Manuel Blanes, Rafael Barradas, Pedro Figari, Joaquín Torres García, José Cuneo and Ignacio Iturria among others.
