Market of the Port



Under its structure of forged iron, which remids people of European train stations, a legend remains. It is said that the materials used for its construction were destined to build a train station in the Pacific area, having sailed in front of the Uruguayan coasts, not knowing the point, the ship that carried them.  But the actual origin of the market was owing to a private initiative that brought plans and new structural techniques of building from England, and caused amazement among the society of Montevideo.  The old Market, with its speciality gave origin to vast shops and an heterogeneous environment where restaurants, terraces, travelling musicians, craftsmen, comedians, painters and all kind of people are found together. People goes to the market to eat, buy or simply to observe the curious human amalgam around the place. Particularly, Saturday is the day chosen by mimes, singers, draughtsmen to turn the place into an animated journey unforgettable for the visitor.  The food of the place is excellent and varied, you can choose from a plain grill to the most sophisticated dish of international cuisine. An old English watch, with a wooden base and metallic end, dominates the inside, placed in the centre of the market. Through time, the Market of the Port has kept an charm that makes it difficult for the visitor who went deep into the labyrinth to forget this place.   Source: Ministry of Tourism and Sports of Uruguay
