When I visited Punta del Este, I only spent 4 days there, so there wasn't much time to see a lot. One of the days we chose to drive up to Montevideo and get to know it quick.
It was about 1h30 drive there and another 1h30 drive back, so we couldn't really spend much time at each place we visited, and on the way from Montevideo, we still wanted to stop at Casapueblo in Punta Ballena. So time was short but we got to see quite a bit.
Our first stop was for a much needed morning coffee at the Punta Carretas mall. Our guide told us that this beautiful building used to a prison before it become one of the most important shopping areas of Montevideo.

Estevez Palace was first where the President of Uruguay would work, then it became a museum with artifacts and mementos of the presidency and office holders.

It is a big structure with lots of food goodies inside, from fruits and veggies to restaurants and kitchen tools.
