This is a park basically for locals.If you have time spend you can come here.T for a walk. This is another park here.
This is the neighborhood where the Blanes Museum and the Botanic Garden are located, and also the premises for the annual cattle show. The streets are beautifully lined with trees.It`s a good spot to walk around and check out this little area of the city
Great little area of the city. Nothing life-changing or revolutionary here, but a solid spot. There are a lot of beautiful houses in this area. A lot of them quite old. Good spot to walk around and just check out the area.
The president lives in this neighbourhood with lots of big and old houses form 1900
Nice for a walk if not cold
At Prado you have stylish old mansions, beautiful churches, the botanical gardens and much more. Every year around Easter you may also join in the celbration of a weeklong fair called the Semana Criolla de Prado. This is the real Uruguay.
the prado is a nice park outside the centre, that has a great botanic garden, split in northern and southern hemisphere, as well as in the parts of the world the plants and trees are from.
we enjoyed especially the colony of green parrots, feasting on fruits and building their nests out of twigs.
I don't quite understand how this location has become #15 of the things to do in Uruguay. Prado is a very nice neighbourhood in the West side about a 20 minute drive from downtown with fancy houses, a large park and it's all safe to walk about. There are the Botenical Gardens, the Japanese Gardens and it's a short walk to the Blanes Art Museum, another very good Uruguayan art museum. There are several great events held in the park (Parque Prado) from time to time which definitely attract crowds. Otherwise, if you're in the area on the weekend it's worth a stop but I wouldn't see it as a highlight.
If you want to spend your day in a park perhaps Parque Rodo, much closer to to city centre, with a good beach and plenty of grassy picnic area across the Rambla is my favorite to wander.
I spent several hours walking around the Prado. It is a perfectly pleasant park, if you're looking for something to do in Montevideo. But otherwise it did not seem to me worth a trip.
On Easter Sunday, we took in the Criollo Gauchos rodeo at the fairgrounds in El Prado. Wow! Brave cowboys riding wild bucking bronco horses! A great time watching and taking photos!
I know. 'La Rambla' is the best par of montevideo yo visit. One of the best places to stay as well. But then, there is El Prado. Amazing parks, really quiet surroundings, and one of the best 'tablados' for carnival season (that means the whole of february an a good piece of march). Los Yuyos, an excellent distillery is a 'must' to visit.
As perhaps the premier park in Montevideo, El Prado is dingy and dirty. The city should spend more money on maintenance to make this an enjoyable location. Skip El Prado and spend your leisure time on the Rambla (beaches).
