This Ancient Fortifications Tour is one of the most original activities you can do in Montevideo. Travel back in time to the glory days of Montevideo’s citadel, built by the Spanish in 1724. All that remains today are the Northern and Southern Bastions, parts of the wall and the Gateway of the Citadel. Walk along the remaining fortifications that once safeguarded the peninsula against invaders and pirates.
After being picked up from your hotel, this historical tour of Montevideo’s ancient fortifications will take you to Las Bóvedas, the old vaults, located on Rambla 25 de agosto. From here, enjoy a walking tour on the walls of colonial Montevideo from the Northern Bastion (Cubo Norte) to the Southern Bastion (Cubo del Sur), two key elements of the star-shaped fort. Your guide and characters from Uruguay’s colonial past will recreate the history that gave birth to Montevideo, with stories, music, and a guide to the archaeological heritage of Montevideo’s fortifications.
This Ancient Fortifications Tour is the best way to get to know the colonial heritage of Uruguay. Enter the Gateway of the Citadel and walk the walls of the old fort as you explore Montevideo’s history. Book online!
