We visited this area and really expected much more from it. Normally when you go to area that symbolises a city you expect to be blown away. Sadly this was not the case here. The Main Street was attractive enough but there was a sense of hopelessness everywhere you looked. Graffiti seems to dominate and lots of shops are boarded up, yet open. We were unfortunate to be here just as the extent of COVID-19 was impacting on South America and clearly did not see Montevideo at its best.

We liked the Independence Plaza - there are so many historic buildings there and the tango museum. The Avenida 18 de Julio is the main "drag" between the plaza and Batlle Park where the large football (soccer) stadium is and the great monument La Carreta which is a tribute to the establishment of the cattle industry.
There are still more cattle than people in Uruguay and they are very proud of how they raise the cattle.
The avenue is less than 2 miles from end to end and is a nice introduction into the city.

The concombe drummers and dancers will get your heart racing. The crowd is lively, festive, and fun -- but it's all a good relaxed, laid-back affair that makes it much less hectic or erratic than the chaos in New Orleans and other places. This is the place for Carnaval.

This is an important avenue with some very beautiful art nouveau buildings, some of them in a deplorabil estate.

I simply love the Avenida, and am drawn to it every time I visit Montevideo. Sure, maybe the “high-end” stores have left for snooty (boring) malls, but the street is still a retail hub of Montevideo that teams with activity and life every day. Weekdays are great when everything is open, but even on weekend when most shops are shuttered, you’ll find ample activity and people simply strolling and enjoying this beautiful city. The best part of the Avenida, however, are the wonderful plazas stung along its length that provide places to rest, people-watch, and enjoy some of the city’s most stunningly beautiful architecture. Have a bite at Bar Facal and grab a window seat, and watch the activity in the Avenida pass by. Don’t miss the tango dancing on weekends in Plaza Fabini. Great street!

From Independence Plaza, one can travel straight down Avenida 18 de Julio to get to the Obelisk and Batlle Park.

A well kept road, like many in Montevideo. Nothing special, but named for an important date in Uruguayan history!

This wide modern avenue leads through the modern city full of tall office buildings and hotels. Not a lot of character here, but it's the functional modern city.

It is a different experience, It is the mixture of a bright past as can be seen in the Salvo Palace Building, the Citadel Gate, Cabildo, Mother Church etc. These buildings, many of them in excellent state of preservation, have been surrounded by new constructions that do not always benefit the historical part, but are the faithful reflection of the old and modern construction. It is worth visiting the old city and the avenue July 18, which was previously the commercial and fun route of the country until the 90s.

One of the major commercial streets in the city with some very nice old architecture. But there is a lot of traffic so it's noisy and polluted.
