In addition, this apartment presents a good opportunity as an investment in a gem of Uruguayan history.
Located in the heart of Montevideo, a few feet from the Presidency, the Palacio Salvo, is the emblematic building of Uruguay. The building was built by the Italian architect Mario Palanti and referred to as “The Eiffel Tower of Montevideo” by artist Alfredo Ghierra The building was originally intended to be a hotel, but this plan didn’t work out, and it has since been occupied by a mixture of offices and private residences. The building has a height of 95 m (312 ft). While the set of antennas was at its top, its total height was 100 m (330 ft). The antennas were permanently removed in November 2012. At present, on that same historic site, inside Palacio Salvo, the Tango Museum of Montevideo is open to the public and exhibits the history of La Cumparsita and of Uruguayan Tango.
