Legislative Palace
Constructed from 1908 to 1925, the Legislative Palace is an impressive neoclassical edifice and perhaps the most important building in all of Uruguay. Like many of Montevideo’s most famous buildings, it was designed by an Italian architect—in this case, Gaetano Moretti. The building is lavishly decorated in marble, much of which was quarried in Uruguay. The Legislative Palace is also noteworthy for its vast collection of statuary, with many of the country’s most famous figures represented in marble and bronze.
