After the crowds of Salvador and Rio, Montevideo was a pleasant change. A very walkable city (indeed, the main city starts at the port) with some interesting architecture but overall a bit dilapidated. The gates to the old city looked a bit forlorn at Independence Plaza. Got the feeling that the renovation of the city was very much a slow work in progress..
Plenty of street art/graffiti and street performers, as well as stalls selling all sorts.
The main cathedral was, as usual, very beautiful. The floors were quite stunning.
