Zwischenspiel in Uruguay – Interlude in Uruguay

Zwischenspiel in Uruguay

Montevideo, Uruguay.

Wenn man nur ein einziges Foto von Montevideo zeigen dürfte, dann müsste es dieses sein: der zentrale Platz der Stadt, die “Plaza Independencia”, mit dem Palacio Salvo. Er ist das absolute Wahrzeichen der Hauptstadt Uruguays.

Wir sind heute von Buenos Aires gekommen und wollen eine Woche in Montevideo bleiben. Unser erster Spaziergang durch die Stadt führt uns zur Plaza Independencia.

Der Palacio Salvo (Mitte des Fotos), benannt nach seinen Eigentümern, wurde 1928 eingeweiht und war mit einer Höhe von 105 m viele Jahre lang das höchste Bauwerk in Südamerika. In dem Gebäude befinden sich Wohnungen und Büros. Der Stil des Art Decó ist typisch für Montevideo.

Das Reiterstandbild auf dem Platz (links im Foto) zeigt den Nationalhelden José Artigas, der als “Vater der Unabhängigkeit Uruguays” angesehen wird. Unter der 17 m hohen Statue befindet sich das unterirdische Artigas-Mausoleum.

Das kleinere weiße Gebäude (rechts unten) ist der “Torre Ejecutiva”, der Sitz des uruguayischen Präsidenten.

Interlude in Uruguay

Montevideo, Uruguay.

If you could only show one photo of Montevideo, it should be this one: the central square of the town, the “Plaza Independencia”, with the Palacio Salvo. The building is the absolute landmark of the Uruguayan capital.

We’ve just arrived from Buenos Aires plannning to stay at Montevideo for a week. Our first walk leads us to Plaza Independencia.

Palacio Salvo (center of the photo), named after his owners, was opened in 1928. The 344-foot edifice used to be the highest building in South America for many years. It houses apartments, condos and businesses. The Art Decó style is typical for Montevideo.

The 56-foot equestrian statue on the square (left in the photo) shows national hero José Artigas, who is considered “the father of Uruguayan nationhood”. The Artigas mausoleum is underground beneath his statue.

The small white building (right below) is the “Torre Ejecutiva”, the seat of the Uruguayan president.
