Amazing that in today's world of political insecurity it is still possible to walk into a national parlement and take photo's freely! The most difficult part of the visit is to get parking, but apart from a few policemen standing about and the official serimonial...More

I was taken here on a tour of the city and was fortunate enough then to join a tour of the building. It is a fine building to visit both inside and out but sadly we did not get into the actual legislative chambers.

This magnificent Legislative Palace is considered to be one of the 3 most beautiful legislative buildings in the World. It has an ornate marble interior that should not be missed (subject to availability).

While the outside is rather impressive, the inside is well worth a visit. The different colours of marble and the beautifully decorated ceiling and walls are testament to how wealthy Uruguay once was.

Hello, My name is Gustavo Diaz. I was born in Montevideo Uruguay and raised in U.S.A. I would like to move back permanently to Uruguay but I do not know anything about Uruguay. Is there any service that can assist me in finding my family in Barrio Obrero La Union ? and, or help me find a permanent apartment for me and my family ? I am currently a English Teacher here in China. If you can also recommend a English School for Employment. That would be greatly appreciated, thank you very much. I hope to be back in my country within the next 2 months. Gracias, y que Dios los bendiga....Gustavo Diaz
