Montevideo Independence Plaza (Plaza Independencia) Tours and Activities

star-4.5
279 Reviews
Free admission

Separating Montevideo’s Old Town and downtown areas, Independence Plaza (Plaza Independencia) is thought to be the city’s most important one, especially since historic structures such as the Solis Theatre (the country’s oldest theater), Estevez Palace and Executive Tower (the president's workplaces) reside here. One very interesting site to see is the 56-foot statue of Jose Gervasio Artigas, a soldier who fought for equality and democracy and later became Uruguay’s national hero. Underground are Artigas’ remains, which are guarded 24 hours a day.

A trip to Plaza Independencia will allow you to visit Artigas' mausoleum and learn about his life, with interesting facts printed on the surrounding walls. The mausoleum is located in the center of the square, under the monument, and is open Mondays from noon to 6 p.m. and Tuesday to Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Climb the Photo Tour by car from Downtown to the West of 45 kilometers traveled by car to the hidden area of Montevideo. Solo, in love, friends or family ... 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. To download, I will send you the link with the guide for iOS, Android and Windows Mobile. - I will use my Nikon Camera with Tripode in necessary places, where I will use for photo shoots, there will be no need for selfies! - PROFESSIONAL EDITION to the photos, without a doubt they will make you look like a professional model without selfies, these will be delivered in the next days in your mail. 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.
