Avenida Garzón, Pueblo Garzón
20401 – Uruguay

Garzón was awarded by the New York Times as one of the best sites in the world to visit (read more).
Pueblo Garzón, a pint-size village tucked within the farmlands of southeastern Uruguay, was all but abandoned after its train station closed half a century ago. So when the Argentine chef Francis Mallmann opened a five-room hotel and restaurant there in 2003, a few skeptical eyebrows were raised. But once the wood-grilling expert persuaded his European and American friends to make the trip inland — Garzón is about 40 miles northeast of Punta del Este, the glamorous seaside resort — word began to spread about the town’s old-time charms: gauchos riding on horseback along tidy gravel streets, residents greeting one another by name, and children playing in a flower-filled central plaza. Now Mr. Mallmann has company. Along with the arrival of travelers in search of epicurean fare came a smattering of new restaurants, boutiques and high-end establishments, including a winery, bringing new life into this quiet corner of the Uruguayan countryside.
Photology was established in 1992 being the first gallery in Italy specialized in photographic arts with more than 350 exhibitions organized worldwide, so far.
