Guided visits

Discovering Montevideo


The following are some of the tours we offer during our weekly excursions:

Walking tours: A unique opportunity to get to know the city’s spirit, take a guided historical and cultural tour through some of the most emblematic neighbourhoods of Montevideo. Feel the beat of the drums and uncover the African culture in Barrio Sur and Palermo, travel to colonial times in the Ciudad Vieja, rediscover the 19th and 20th century in El Prado and stumble upon hidden architectural treasures in Pocitos and Punta Carretas…

IMG_5530Museums: Walking through Montevideo you will find more than a dozen museums, mostly located in Centro and the Ciudad Vieja. We invite you to visit a variety of permanent and travelling exhibitions on display, allowing you to learn plenty about Montevideo’s history as well as the history of Uruguay in general.

Here in Montevideo there is plenty to uncover, from the city’s origin as a colony in Cabildo to the home of our first President Fructuoso Rivera. If you’re interested in art, dive into the history of the decorative arts at Taranco Palace or absorb the mysticism of the Blanes Museum…

Mercado del Puerto MontevideoWineries: One definitely should not leave Uruguay without having tried Uruguayan wine. The school organizes excursions to wineries in rural Montevideo where you’ll have the opportunity to taste the pride of our country: the Tannat.

Bars and cafes with history: Many of the bars and cafes in Montevideo have been the hub of Uruguayan popular culture since the city’s naissance. We suggest visiting the cafe Tasende, El Café Brasilero, as well as the bars El Hacha, Fun Fun and Los Yuyos. These bars and cafés were once the second homes of the leaders of the literary, political and mu
sic scenes.

bike tour in Montevideo on ramblaOn Wheels: the Rambla de Montevideo is over 20 km long and while it can be toured in full on foot, a leisurely bike ride is a very tempting alternative. What better than to ride along the Montevidean coast, enjoying the beaches and beautiful views, using eco-friendly transport!

Grab your bike and let’s cycle along the Rambla or through the parks and numerous green spaces that the city has to offer.

Tango and Candombre


The Tango and the Candombe are two unique forms of rhythmic expression that best illustrate the soul of Uruguay.  Performances of these stunning styles of music and dance are not to be missed.

Candombe and Tango were declared of Intangible Cultural Heritage by UNESCO in 2009. Enrol in a class today!


Spanish Workshops


Hispania Schools Uruguay offers Spanish workshops twice a week. Workshops last one hour, are free and provide a unique opportunity to hone different communication skills. Each workshop focuses on the specific needs of the participants to enable them to strengthen their command of Spanish and speak with confidence.

In addition to these workshops, we recommend that you find a partner to practise speaking with, to watch TV, and to listen to local radio stations. In short, you are advised to take advantage of all available opportunities to speak Spanish (on the street, in restaurants, with your host family, etc).


  • Conversation Workshop: This workshop is a space where you can practice your communication skills through exercises and games involving peer interaction.
  • Pronunciation Workshop: In this workshop you will gain speed and learn to speak with precision and accuracy. The teacher will coach you in fun pronunciation exercises so that you become aware of certain Spanish sounds.
  • Audio Workshop: This workshop is a place to interact with other students of the Academy, regardless of their language level. The aim is to practice auditory comprehension through listening exercises and discussion mediated by the teacher.
  • Film Workshop and Discussion: In this workshop we play movies of the most well-known and well-loved Latin American directors, predominantly those of Uruguayan and Argentinean origin. Later, we encourage all participants to discuss and debate the issues raised in the film.


What other country has as much football history as Uruguay?

Hispania Schools Uruguay invites you to participate in various football-related activities.

In 1930 Uruguay hosted the first FIFA World Cup in which 13 countries participated. The matches were played mostly in the grand Centenario Stadium, a stadium built by the architect Juan Scasso with a capacity of 60,000 spectators located in the Parque Batlle neighbourhood.

football champion uruguayLet us take you to “El Centenario,” (as it is known colloquially) the most important stadium in Uruguay. El Centenario has been a Historical Monument of World Football since 1983 and it houses a fantastic Football Museum (as well as a police station and school) located at the foot of the Olympic Grandstand. Deepending on the timing of your visit, you may even be lucky and see a live football match there.

Group outings to the museum occur on average once a month, but if you would like to visit on your own it is open Monday to Friday from 10am to 5pm and admission is around US$5. Inside you can find banners, trophies and uniforms of the Uruguayan national teams of 1924 and 1928, the years that Uruguay won gold at the Olympic Games, as well as from the World-Cup-winning national teams of 1930 and 1950.


Sport Activities

kitesurf uruguay

If your passion isn’t football, you can practice beach sports (volleyball, football, kitesurfing etc.), take long walks or go jogging along the Rambla.

At different points along the Rambla you can also find “healthy community spaces.” These are outdoor gyms that are free to the public.bow-and-basket

La Rambla is also ideal for biking or rollerblading, and in Buceo there is even a skate park!

Basketball is another of Uruguayans’ favourite sports.  In October the popular Uruguayan Basketball League starts, playing in gyms around the city over six months, fighting for the championship.

If you want to see Montevidean fans following basketball, we recommend you go to see one of the games of the Aguada team (the 2013 League champions) as they have the greatest number of fans. Going to see a basketball game in Montevideo is without a doubt one of the most exceptional activities available in the city.

In Montevideo you can also find places to practice:

Tai Chi

Yoga: once in the school you can talk to Claudia who, besides being one of our teachers, is also a yoga instructor with extensive experience in hatha and kundalini yoga.
