Peatonal Sarandí

The Peatonal Sarandí is a pedestrian walkway leading from Plaza Independencia through Montevideo's Ciudad Vieja. It's lined with shops and restaurants and vendors sell beads, agates, amethyst, leather bracelets, and mates from tables or blankets on the ground. The Museo Torres García is on Peatonal Sarandí. The peatonal passes through Plaza Matriz where antique vendors outnumber the handicrafts. Activity on the peatonal diminishes at the far end (away from Plaza Independencia) but Plaza Zabala is nearby. From there it's just a few blocks to the Mercado del Puerto.
