We will discover some of the most emblematic Art Deco Buildings in Ciudad Vieja, for an about 2 hours walking tour. Our guide Martha is an arquitect and will speak in english . Besides, she will explain the historic context of the Montevideo Old Quarter development.

This city has the privilege of hosting some of the most beautiful examples of all of South America Art Deco. Not only in architecture was it developed, in furniture, lighting, fashion designs, typography, sculptural pieces. It is characterized by the emphasis of the vertical lines, staggered volumes and maintains a rigorous symmetry. Abstract or figurative decoration (straight lines, angles, tropical flora and fauna or themes of the machinist civilization - airplanes, transatlantic, etc ...)
