A visit to Montevideo is like venturing to the heart and soul of Uruguay, home to half of its population and now a thriving center of art, culture, history, colonial architecture, as well as the center of its government. If you're looking to take one of your next flights to Montevideo, learn all about this vibrant capital city, which was once a military post founded in the early 1700's. It's also a wonderful city for walking and bicycling, and can easily be traveled to all on foot.

The Palacio Legislativo is not only the center of Uruguayan government, but also an extremely regal columned building, designed in the neo-classical style. Built in the early 1900's it's the perfect opportunity to experience gorgeous architecture, combined with fascinating artwork and an impressive tour of the heart of Uruguayan government. The interior of the building features impressive, rich shades of Uruguayan marble (36 types to be exact), wood, brass and beautifully colored stained glass. Tours-which are offered in English-are highly recommended. So, if you already know the dates that you wish to travel on, why not take a look at cheap flights to Montevideo?
Continue your visit to the nation's capital with a trip to the Plaza Independencia, and the center square of its old city, lined with palm trees and complete with its massive monument to Jose Gervasio Artigas, the 'father of Uruguayan Independence.' This monument resides over his grave site, and there is a changing of the guard here daily at 12. Be sure not to miss it. It would be completely out of place if you came to Montevideo and didn't participate in some of the local customs, like drinking mate. What is mate? Mate is a hot drink made from bitter herbs, drunk in a wooden cup, and out of a metal straw. It packs a serious punch, and is the national beverage of Uruguay. Sit in a café in the old city and try a mate to feel like a local. Another old city favorite is to take a look at the Palacio Salvo, constructed in 1917, and still one of South America's largest buildings. It is extremely beautiful and continues to not only dominate one end of the Plaza Independencia, but continues to move tourists and natives alike with its stunning beauty. More than just a pretty face, the Palacio Taranco is an excellent opportunity to be dazzled inside and out by this charming museum. It's a gorgeous 20th century house, which allows patrons to see Uruguayan art, architecture, furniture, house wares, sculptures and beautiful historical objects, all for free. The building was designed in a classical 1900's style, seen in many buildings in Montevideo. There are often street performers performing in front of this building, so it's a truly entertaining place to explore, both out and inside.
