As the biggest city, with the best quality of life in Latin America, Montevideo is the site of beautiful beaches and countless museums and monuments. Uruguay's capital boasts a glittering harbour, and dozens of historical buildings and squares. Montevideo is the birthplace of both the tango and the football World Cup; the dance was born on the narrow streets of the city, while the final of the very first World Cup took place in the city's Estadio Centenario. A visit to see one of the city's two football teams, Nacional or Penarol, is an experience which offers a truly authentic slice of Montevideo life.
Sports fans may also want to visit Punta Carretas, a golf course located within the confines of the city, while for those with a thirst for history there is no shortage of sights to take in. The Palacio Salvo strikes an imposing figure on the skyline, and was said to be the tallest building in South America at the time of its building in 1925. The port's Palacio Legislativo, Catedral Metropolitana and Cabildo de Montevideo are also 'must-see' sights, while there are also hundreds of restaurants to get the mouth watering.
