The neoclassical Teatro Solís is another one of Montevideo’s important landmarks on the Plaza Independencia. Designed by the Italian architect Carlo Zucchi, responsible for a number of important buildings in Montevideo and Buenos Aires, the theater opened in 1856. An extensive renovation of the building was completed in 2004. It remains one of the city’s premier cultural venues and guided tours of the building are offered.
