Montevideo, Uruguay's capital city, is the economic and political centre of the country located at Uruguay's southernmost point on the Rio de la Plata.
A charming city made up of 19th century Beaux Arts buildings, parks, and historic monuments, Montevideo is home to more than half of the nation's three million citizens. Small in size, but large in status, Montevideo is an example of stability and democracy envied by her larger neighbors, and she is one of the most literate nations in the world, with a tradition of humanism and social justice.
Montevideo features a mild humid subtropical climate with cool winters, warm summers and volatile springs. Summer runs from December to March, followed by autumn in April and May; winter lasts from June to September, and spring is in October and November.
