Villa General Belgrano
"The German Town"
The town was founded in the 1930 by some Germans. In 1940 British seaman sunk the German battleship Admiral Graf Spee off the coast of the Montevideo harbour and 130 of its surviving sailors settled in the village, since this was one of the few places where they were welcomed.
The German influence is very clear today in architecture, beer festival, rich chokolate and german food such as wursts (sausages) and gulash.
The town is a nice and quiet place to hang out and there is a nice walk up a hill to see a nice view of the area.
