The Palacio Salvo is a magnificent building constructed on the Plaza Independencia. However I am not exactly sure what "today's use" of the building is. As far as I am aware, there is no real importance or interest e.g it is not a governmental office...More

We rented an apartment here, on the 14th floor, during our stay in Montevideo. Breathtaking views and the building is gorgeous.

Christine (Autentico Uruguay) made this place come to life for us. It has quite a history and many reinventions of use. She led us to many floors to comment on its architecture and pointed out differences denoting style and wealth.
