Great little area of the city. Nothing life-changing or revolutionary here, but a solid spot. There are a lot of beautiful houses in this area. A lot of them quite old. Good spot to walk around and just check out the area.

At Prado you have stylish old mansions, beautiful churches, the botanical gardens and much more. Every year around Easter you may also join in the celbration of a weeklong fair called the Semana Criolla de Prado. This is the real Uruguay.

I spent several hours walking around the Prado. It is a perfectly pleasant park, if you're looking for something to do in Montevideo. But otherwise it did not seem to me worth a trip.

On Easter Sunday, we took in the Criollo Gauchos rodeo at the fairgrounds in El Prado. Wow! Brave cowboys riding wild bucking bronco horses! A great time watching and taking photos!

I know. 'La Rambla' is the best par of montevideo yo visit. One of the best places to stay as well. But then, there is El Prado. Amazing parks, really quiet surroundings, and one of the best 'tablados' for carnival season (that means the whole...More

As perhaps the premier park in Montevideo, El Prado is dingy and dirty. The city should spend more money on maintenance to make this an enjoyable location. Skip El Prado and spend your leisure time on the Rambla (beaches).

Wonderful place for a stroll on a sunny day. An extremely relaxing and lovely park to spend a quiet afternoon away from the crowds.
