"Uruguay is a South American country known for its green interior and beach-lined coastline. The capital, Montevideo, is located around Plaza Independencia, where there was once a Spanish citadel. This leads to the Old City, with art deco buildings, colonial houses and the Mercado del Puerto with many steakhouses. La Rambla is a coastal promenade with fish stalls, docks, beaches and parks."
