El Águila

El Águila, the eagle, is an eccentric cabin built overlooking the sea near Atlántida. The eyes are windows, rumoured to have been used to watch for smugglers. There is a great view of the Rio from there. Now, the building is open to tourists, courtesy of the Ministry of Tourism and Sports.

Atlántida also has a small zoo. Shown here are a ñandu and a carpincho, both native to Uruguay.
