Montevideo is the Capital of Uruguay. It was founded back in 18th Century. It was colonized by British, Spanish, Argentine, Portuguese, and Brazilians in 19th Century. This colonial background has a huge impact on its culture, music, architecture and gastronomy. Montevideo has been part of UNESCO Creative Cities Network in Literature since 2015. The city is like an open-air museum where people can enjoy various activities within the city.
Mercado del Puerto is hub of Uruguayan traditional food and beverage. The torta frita, the pan-fired cake, the chivito, the Uruguayan sandwich, and the mate, an infused tea usually served hot, are the typical food found in Montevideo.
