Posta de la Diligencia / Paseo del Hotel
Circle this building in your guide when you visit the city. It is a real icon around here.
Not to be missed.
Looking for a place where the past and the future go hand in hand? Then you won't want to miss out on the Posta de la Diligencia, whose loyal spirit lives on in Montevideo. Located in the Paso del Molino neighbourhood, for many years it was all but left to rot but thanks to the work of architects and intellectuals this iconic building, which dates back to 1860, has been lovingly restored. It is currently home to a very dynamic, important cultural centre which organises numerous activities and guided tours, events which aim to preserve the memory of the past when it was the cultural epicentre of the city. Also known as Paseo del Hotel, this building has borne witness to the most important social, cultural and political changes that have occurred in the city. On the other side of the street, you'll find the Diligencia monument which is one of the most famous works by the Uruguayan artist José Belloni and a real symbol of this area of Montevideo.
