Montevideo, The stunning capital of Uruguay !!!!

Montevideo (IPA: [monteβi'ðeo]) is the largest city, the capital and chief port of Uruguay. Montevideo is the primate city in Uruguay, the only city in the country with a population over 1,600,000. Montevideo has a fine harbour, one of the most important in the Americas. Also, it has beautiful beaches, such as Pocitos, Buceo, Malvín, Playa de los Ingleses, Playa Verde, Punta Gorda and Carrasco. Many monuments and museums are found in the city, as well as historic buildings and squares. The city's mayor is Ricardo Ehrlich. According to Mercer Human Resource Consulting, Montevideo has the highest quality of life in Latin America.[1][2][3] It is the seat of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Montevideo.

Condos are very popular, apparantely, nice. Theres a few nice old looking buildings in random areas. It seems as if there was some sort of all out demolition of the original buildings in the past, right. There's had to have been, what a shame. The city looks splendid nontheless, thanks...

Great pictures there, Montevideo looks like a very nice interesting city with diverse architecture types - a nice mix of old and new, some very European looking buildings there too like the one that says London-Paris on its corner.

Wow, amazingly nice place, probably even better in direct sunshine. Do you have any nice beaches nearby?
