The capital city of Uruguay, Montevideo is situated across the Rio de la Plata from Buenos Aires. Full of 19th century Beaux Arts buildings, historic monuments and parks, this charming city is a pleasure to have a stroll around. Popular attractions in Montevideo include ‘Establecimiento Juanico', which is an international winery with vineyards and stone buildings dating back to 1849. ‘Plaza Independencia' should also be on your “things to see” list. As well as being Montevideo's oldest city square, ‘Plaza Independencia' is also the site of an enormous monument to Uruguayan hero Jose Artigas.
With excellent quality jackets, coats, wallets and belts in calf, antelope, suede and sheepskin, Montevideo is a paradise for leather lovers.
