Palacio Salvo

Palacio Salvo is likely the best-known building in Montevideo. When it was built in 1927, it was the tallest building in South America. Building codes in Montevideo prevented new construction from exceeding the height of Palacio Salvo, so, for decades, it was the tallest building in Uruguay. New rules have allowed taller buildings; currently, the Antel (telephone company) tower is the tallest. The Palacio Salvo is on the Plaza Indepedencia.
