Montevideo is the capital of country, politic-economical center and the MERCOSUR administrative headquarters. It was founded between 1724 and 1726 as a stronghold, near the port, in the great bay from which you can see the Cerro de Montevideo. According to the most accepted theories the town owes its name, to this geografic accident. The word “Montevideo” would be formed by the code “Monte VI D.E.O.” of old nautical charts.
