Take a break from sightseeing at Plaza Uruguaya, a quaint plaza originally the location of the Convent of San Francisco during colonial times. Today people stop to relax on a bench and watch the life of the city go by in this small plaza. Take in the surrounding statues and greenery, or go shopping for a souvenir at the small huts that sell items, particularly Spanish books. On the outskirts of the plaza sit small cafes, or check out the nearby historical train station to see some of the standing history of the area.

  • I suspect this plaza gets extra pedestrian traffic as it is located in front of the Cabildo, the old legislative building during the dictatorship. The plaza is anchored by a statue of a national hero....  more »
  • Although this square is pleasant, there is no overriding reason to visit it as opposed to other squares. Certainly a brief stop is not unrewarded but there is just nothing spectacular about it.  more »

  • Very nice city park, very well kept. It has nice old trees, historical monuments, nice park benches. It all fenced in. This is the reason why it is nice and safe. It is a nice place to walk, seat at a bench and chit chat with a friend while sharing Terere or eat your lunch while being visited by friedly tiny birds chirping for tiny marsel of food. Cool place.🤗🙏🙏🙏
  • Its basically the heart of downtown/ central... Nice places to eat all around.. Cools trinkets to buy left and right.
