Plaza De Cagancha (libertad) - City Plaza Montevideo - Uruguay

With the main road running through its middle, Plaza de Cagancha may not be as relaxing as other nearby plazas but is nevertheless one of the most important. At the top of a tall column is a monument dedicated to peace, while on the south side the grand Palacio Piria (Supreme Court of Justice) dominates on the Pasaje de los Derechos Humanos (Passage of Human Rights). Equality, liberty and security are the themes, and ground-level plaques recite from the constitution.
