Welcome to Legislative Palace

Legislative Palace

The impressive neo-classical Legislative Palace, built in the early 20th century, features four architecturally breathtaking facades oriented towards the four cardinal points, each decorated with bronze sculptures in turn representing Law, Justice, Science and Labour. It is particularly attractive when floodlight at night. The interior is just as awe-inspiring, housing some significant works of art, and guided tours are offered in English and Spanish.

Information & Facts

The official language is Spanish.

The official currency of Uruguay is the Uruguayan Peso (UYU), but US Dollars are also accepted by some tourist businesses, retailers and taxi drivers. The peso is divided into 100 centécimos. Currency can be exchanged at banks and Money Exchange Shops, which both offer similar exchange rates. Exchange rates tend to fluctuate frequently. There are plenty of ATMs available in shopping centres and attached to banks in commercial areas, but not all cards are accepted. Credit cards, including Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Diners Club, are widely accepted by shops and restaurants. Travellers cheques are easiest to exchange if in US Dollars.

Guided tours leave Monday to Friday between 9am and 5pm
GMT -3 (GMT -2 from October to March).
