Montevideo!!!a beautiful unknowed city

Between 1680 and 1683, to challenge the sovereignty of Spain in the region, the Portuguese colonizers of Brazil established various settlements on the shores of the River Plate, opposite the city of Buenos Aires, including Colonia del Sacramento. However, the Spaniards did not perform any attempt to evict the Portuguese until 1723, when they began to fortify the hills surrounding the bay of Montevideo. A Spanish expedition from Buenos Aires, organized by the Spanish governor in that city, Bruno Mauritius to Zabala, forced the Portuguese to leave the place, where the Spaniards began to populate the new city, initially with six families from Buenos Aires and then with arribadas families from the Canary Islands. On December 20, 1726 was developed a pattern of inhabitants and, finally, on December 24 was delineatorio charted a plane and was appointed as San Felipe de Montevideo and Santiago, who later would be abbreviated name in Montevideo.

The importance of Montevideo as the main port in the Viceroyalty of the River Plate earned him several times clashes with Buenos Aires, capital of the Viceroyalty. On February 3, 1807, British troops under the command of General Sir Samuel Auchmuty and Admiral Sir Charles Stirling occupy the city, which would be released on September 9 the same year after the surrender of John Whitelocke before the militias formed by eastern and Argentines from Buenos Aires.

In the May Revolution of 1810 and during the revolutionary uprising in the provinces of Rio de la Plata, Montevideo remains faithful to the Spanish authorities.

After consolidating Uruguay as an independent state in 1828, the city was established as the capital of the country.

He suffers a site for 8 years between 1843 and 1851 during the Great War.

In 1888, the only recorded earthquake that has affected in its history.

In the course of the twentieth century receives large numbers of European immigrants, especially Spanish and Italian, followed by French and German, besides the most diverse nationalities that continent and peripheral to it (British, Polish, Greek, Hungarian, Russian, Lebanese , Armenians, Jews of various origins, etc..) Which provided its important cultural diversity, these years being the fastest growing demographic of the same.
