Montevideo is the capital city of Uruguay, political and economic center of the country and administrative headquarters of MERCOSUR.
Its founding process takes place between 1724 and 1730. It was founded as a stronghold, next to the port on Río de la Plata, in the great bay from where you can see the hill of Montevideo. During this period, its colonization stage began with the arrival of Spanish families from Buenos Aires and the Canary Islands. Currently, Montevideo is a reference destination in Latin America. Throughout the year, the city offers visitors a varied cultural and recreational agenda, quality services, and captivating landscapes along with values as precious as the safety and hospitality of its people. Montevideo is also a recognized venue for organizing professional, business and governmental congresses at an international level.
