Peatonal Sarandi, Montevideo
Peatonal Sarandi is the principle walking street of the city. There are lots of cafes, boutique shops, hotels, etc. along this inviting street.
The street connects many of the old districts highlights like the Plaza Independencia, the Plaza de Constitucion and it misses Plaza Zabala only by about 20m.
One thing that many may literally pass over and not even take notice of are the celebrity stars paved in the road, honoring many of the local Uruguyan influential people. It may be equated to sorts like the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
For example, the picture below is for Uruguayan journalist and poet, Mario Benedetti. He was arguably one of the most important 20th-century Spanish speaking writers.
One of the nicest things to do in Montevideo is stroll along the pedestrian street of Peatonal Sarandi, with its shops, restaurants and street cafes.
