An oasis

A lovely place to escape to from the avenue - to just sit and watch the locals and the pigeons go about their days.

While walking along the Av. 18 de Julio we found this square a perfect place to rest and watch the movement of people. There is a well crafted monument in the fountain that will render some nice pictures.

If you walk through 18 de Julio, the main downtown street the plaza is in the middle. You will go buy. Lots of doves, children and people siting around having a little break. For people who live around is the plaza they might go to relax.

After dinner I headed the other way on San Jose and then turned right and lo and behold I ran into this cool little park in the center of the town.... it's actually quite impressive and it seemed the locals were enjoying this place... just a stones throw from the high pressure, highly populated sidewalks of the city.... it's a...

The Plaza Fabini is a beautiful area of grass, trees and fountains on the main boulevard in Montevideo. It is a scenic place to sit and enjoy people watching and also the sounds of the fountains and the city.

Also known as "El Entrevero" (the melee), this powerful oversize ensmble pictures an all out clash between several mounted gauchos and indians. Each figure (including the incredible horses, is giving its all to the act of spearing, macing or otherwise destroying their chose adversary. I have seldom seem such passion in an action statuary.

it is worth to walk around or simply just sit down and relax. You can find little cafes or restaurants close to this place. But if it is sunny it is really worth to relax here.

If you are going to Plaza Independencia, just walk for 5 minutes here and go on. It is only a regular fountain. Do not waste tour time, there are more interesting things to see in Montevideo.
