Artigas Square - City Plaza Nueva Palmira - Uruguay

Located in the town’s highest point, Plaza Artigas was originally called Plaza del Templo (Temple Square) in honor of the church situated across the street. At the square’s center lies the bronze statue of General Artigas. The church, Nuestra Senora de los Remedios, is named after the town’s patron saint. The building dates back to the mid-19th century and is one of the oldest in the department of Colonia. The remains of the town’s founder, Felipe Santiago Torres Leiva, are found in the church.
