Punta Carretas Shopping Center

ADD TO MY TRIP

naturalfresh & funky

Imagine Alcatraz turned into a mall and that is Punta Carretas Shopping. This former prison has become one of the best spots in Montevideo to buy everything from a hat to a pound of sugar.Former cells have become trendy stores. The inmates' gym is now a huge food court and the roof has been revamped into a fantastic multiplex that plays more than 50 movies a day. The former prison garages are now a supermarket where fresh products of all sorts can be bought. A Prison Break, indeed!
