There are at least two explanations for the name of Montevideo: the first one says that the name came from the Portuguese expression “Monte vide eu”, that means “I saw the mount”, phrase said by an anonymous sailor who took part in the excursion of Fernando de Magallanes when he saw the hill.
The second version says that the Spaniards wrote the geographical situation on a map “Monte VI de Este a Oeste”.
Tourism in Montevideo is centered in the Ciudad Vieja area, which includes the city's oldest buildings, several museums, art galleries, and nightclubs.
