A Praça Constituição (em espanhol: Plaza Constitución) é a praça mais antiga da capital uruguaia, Montevidéu, situada no centro do bairro histórico da Cidade Velha. É conhecida popularmente como Praça Matriz (Plaza Matriz) por localizar-se em frente à Catedral Metropolitana de Montevidéu.

A praça recebe seu nome oficial por ter sido neste local que se jurou, em 18 de julho de 1830, a primeira constituição da recém nascida República Oriental do Uruguai. Na antiga cidade colonial e durante as primeiras décadas da independência do Uruguai, esta praça foi o centro da vida nacional, posicionada em frente ao Cabildo de Montevidéu, sede do governo colonial, obra de Tomás Toribio, e à igreja Matriz (atual Catedral Metropolitana de Montevidéu), esta última conservando os restos mortais de Fructuoso Rivera, Juan Antonio Lavalleja e Venancio Flores.

Atualmente ela é o centro comercial e turístico do bairro, juntamente com a via para pedestres Sarandí. Em suas imediações encontram-se escritórios de ministérios, bancos e instituições culturais, bem como uma variada oferta gastronômica.

Dies ist ein Überblick von South America

South America makes up the southern half of the Americas and a large part of Latin America. It's home to the world's longest mountain range, biggest waterfall and largest river -- even these mammoths pale in comparison to the stunning variety of life forms thriving in the rainforest.

To the northwest, off the coast of Ecuador, lie the Galapagos Islands, which are unique for hosting species not found anywhere else on earth. These were the subject of study for Charles Darwin in his theory of evolution, which he himself said will require proof in every single case.

The main languages in South America are Spanish and Portugese, which basically tells you which European countries colonized the place. The South American wars of independence took place over two decades in the early 19th century, led by Simon Bolivar of Venezuela and Jose san Martin of Argentina.

Following liberation from Portugal and Spain, South America took off into its own development, capitalizing on the rich deposits of oil, gold, copper, silver and tango musicians.

Brazil is the largest country in South America and home to one of the world's best parties, Carnaval. Have you heard of samba music? How about bossa nova? Maybe dancing for three days straight?

I can't say enough good things about South America. All the world's continents have amazing secrets and treasures laying in wait for your discovery, but in South America... just have a look at our pictures while you're waiting for online confirmation of your plane tickets to hit your inbox.
