Montevideo Port Market (Mercado del Puerto)

star-4.5
207 Reviews
Free admission

Viewing the building of Montevideo's Port Market (Mercado del Puerto), you’ll be confused about what exactly you’re looking at. Originally built as a train station in another location, the facade ended up in Montevideo as a market, instead. Located in Montevideo’s Old Town, the plaza outside is filled with outdoor-seating restaurants and craft stalls, while inside you’ll find even more eateries and shops. Musicians will entertain you as you sample fresh seafood and flavorful “asado”, a traditional way of grilling meats on open fire, common in many South American countries.

Along with being a great place to shop for souvenirs and antiques and eat copious amounts of red meat, the market holds 130 years of Uruguay’s history. Mercado del Puerto was completed on July 19, 1885, and still supplies a comfortable, homey place for people of all social classes and backgrounds. Moreover, the old world architecture will transport you back to a time when foods coming from inland areas and illegal imports were sold there. Saturdays are a fun time to go, when the atmosphere takes on an overly festive tone.

Follow me on my photo tour and know many stories with my original Audioguide, I will take MANY photos, posing in incredible places of the Old City and you can even get to know places as we move without stopping in them. We will make stops to take many photographs, you will be posing in different emblematic places of the city (more than 30 tourist and another not so much being hidden), in less than 2 hours, you will have been in as many places as possible, my intention is that you can be professionally portrayed in places and 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 the photos are unlimited, whether 50, 100 or 200 are within the rate, there will be no payments or extra costs ever. 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.

I think that I am able to provide a lively historical review of the Old City. Many who come to Uruguay, arrive via Cruise liners and I believe that throughout the 2 and half hours that I show them around, that they have fallen a little in love with the city. The Old City has a lot of history waiting to be uncovered, as a guide I am there to reveal that while we walk around, we are also walking around with the past.
