El Prado Montevideo

star-4
123 Reviews

El Prado is a residential neighborhood of Montevideo that features beautiful historic homes and manicured, tree-lined streets. The area includes the former presidential residence, Montevideo’s main park area, the Juan Manuel Blanes Museum and three soccer stadiums.

Parque del Prado is a peaceful spot for residents of Montevideo, as Miguelete Creek flows through the park and the expansive 102-acre (41-hectare) grounds feature a rose garden, botanical garden, fountains and monuments. The botanical garden contains over 1,000 plant species and is the only one of its kind in Uruguay. The rose garden includes imported roses from France and was designed by French landscape architect Charles Recine. Hotel del Prado, built in the French neoclassical style, sits within Parque del Prado’s grounds and serves as a tea house and meeting room today.

What was once the official presidential palace (from 1947 to 2005) is today a shelter for homeless people. The most recent presidents did not move into the residence, with José Mujica (inaugurated in 2010) securing an agreement to let homeless people move in.

The Juan Manuel Blanes Museum is also called the Museum of Fine Arts and celebrates the famous Uruguayan painter. The museum grounds also include a beautiful Japanese garden.

Bella Vista Athletic Club (José Nasazzi Park), River Plate Athletic Club (Federico Saroldi Park) and Montevideo Wanderers (Alfredo V. Viera Park) are the soccer clubs that play within the El Prado neighborhood.

Get on my photo tour and learn many stories with my original Audio Guide that will inform you of the places we go through hidden areas of the neighborhoods Downtown, Aguada, Prado, Capurro, La Teja and Villa del Cerro, you will know the history and true idiosyncrasy of local citizens, posing in incredible places where tourist agencies do not show you and you can even get to know places without stopping at them. We will make stops to take several photographs, you will be posing in different emblematic places of the city (more than 30 tourist and others not so much), more than 4 hours, you will have been in as many places as possible, in addition, my intention is that you can stay professionally portrayed the way you could never do it on your own. In addition they will not only be photographs as you can take, they will be photos with professional edition and post-production as if you were a professional model. It doesn't matter your age, your physical appearance or your ease of posing in front of a camera. IMPORTANT: - We will always be small groups, the photos are private, they will never be mixed with other people in the group. - The delivery of all photos are unlimited, 50, 100 or 200 are within the rate, there will be no extra payments FREE. You can download our APP Audioguide for our tour in your language, which will be a fundamental factor for the activity and enrich knowledge while we move around the city.

I am a landscape photographer, I have long dedicated myself to photo reporting and portrait photography. In another of my qualities, I can emphasize that I like to travel around the city and do what I know and like, that the visitor takes the photographic record forever where he does not access with agencies. What is the difference, of a selfie in a tourist place, with a common cell phone? Simple, not only will you have a photograph, but it will have the professional edition and I will deliver unlimited photos, making not only that the image is taken in the most emblematic places, but I will also turn you into a professional model without being it.
