Constitution Square (Plaza Matriz) - City Plaza Montevideo - Uruguay

Historically, this is the place where the newly formed Republic of Uruguay signed it’s Constitution (hence the name). Important city buildings like Catedral Metropolitana and El Cabildo flank either side, and the plaza aligns with the pedestrian walkway Sarandí. At the center, you’ll find an ornate marble fountain, inaugurated in 1871, with the start of potable water service to the city. Besides weighty in historical significance, the square serves as a focal point for shoppers and tourists, with shops lining the shady pathways and vendors selling the likes of antiques, culterly, toys, books and jewelery.
